  • In the middle of nowhere, after crossing the Quebrada de Las Flechas (coming from Cafayate). Take a sunset trip to Los Colorado, a small, colourful mountain circus, indian sacred spot and UFO landing site (it seems...). Respect absolute silence. Be careful asking his way to Angastaco, otherwise it's panic. "El Cardon": a very small hotel in the centre of the village convenient and cheap. dinner and breakfast in a small restaurant above the church.

  • The view is breathtaking, incredible, a lunar landscape where the combination of tectonic movements and wind have literally tilted the formation. The name comes from the pointed rocks that compose it and that soar towards the sky like arrows. A trail, which can be walked in about ten minutes, leads to a vantage point, the Ventisquero, where you can admire from above so much beauty.
