Itinerary

Our Cachi Tour starts by picking you up from your hotel in Salta and slowly make our way south through the traditional country villages and the sweet smelling Tobacco fields stopping at points of interest along the way. After stopping for a coffee break in the small town of El Carril we verge off through a small band of the cloud forest to the “Quebrada del escoipe” a ravine e named after one of the villages that is nestled within it. We wine our way through the ravine observing the many colourful and cacti covered hills before starting our climb up the famous Cuesta de Obispo or “the Bishops slope” a gravel road that climes up to over 3000 meters above sea level.
Having made the journey up to the top of the Cuesta we carry on to the National park of “Los Cardones” along one of the many Inca roads in the area. Once we have passed through the park we will take a moment to appreciate the slender of the” Nevado de Cachi” the snow-capped peak under which the small town of Cachi is situated.
Once in the town you will have the chance to explore around the old cobbled streets and the local church and museums and have lunch in one of the many little restaurants or cafes the town has to offer.
On our way back we will make a slight detour through “Los Colorados”, a collection of colourful dessert like hills before dropping back down towards Salta.

Travel time to and from Cachi is around 6-7 hours depending on the amount of stops we make. The route is a mainly pathed but does contain a substantial amount of quite bumpy dirt roads in places.
We like stop at various locations to give you a chance to take in the scenery and stretch your legs to break up the journey.
