Part of the old highway... great way to see the Andes, elevation changes, as you head from Mendoza towards the main highway which goes to Chile, passing by Aconcagua .
We did this trip in a day, yes it was a bit nerve wracking at times, we saw some Llamas and mountain goats, it is not an easy road with it not being paved, but once we got round the curves, it was beautiful, with all the scraggy mountain shapes, thought we were on another planet, we stopped at the...

We booked our bus with Andesmar through Omnilinea. This is an amazing trip. We got the semi-cama seats on top for the views -- try to get the front seats, if possible! The hairpin turns and curves are an amazing feat of engineering. The mountain vistas and views were stunning. I'm glad we did this instead of flying back to... More
We took Andesmar bus service from Santiago chile to Mendoza , very comfortable and if you take the upper deck seat in front an amazing view, AND you don't have to drive the many hairpin curves! great experience
Very scenic drive through the Andes Mountains. There is one section with 30 hairpin turns! The day we did the drive (early August) there was a snow storm that caused them to close the road. We were the last bus to get through. The other thing you need to be prepared for is customs and immigration. We stood outside in... More
We did the 'Alta Montana' trip with Huentata tours. This day trip was a circuit through the Great Andes range, to the Chilean border. You will visit the Potrerillos and Upsallata Valleys; the historical bridge Pucheuta; the Inca's Bridge; Las Cuevas Village and in summer or if weather permits, the Andes Redemption Christ. Great views of Mount Aconcagua and the... More
Great drive through the pre Andes into the Arid(dry)Andes.Some of the most amazing scenery I have ever seen. These mountains are powerful, craggy and majestic always changing in color and character. We drove to the border with Chile. Saw Aconcagua in the distance...amazing. Completely different in character then I expected. Great way to spend a day when in Mendoza.
We saw this as part of a one day High Andes trip out of Mendoza City and were suitably impressed. The curves are indeed spectacular, the rock colours amazingly varied and the mountains including Mount Aconcagua just majestic.
Long but lovely drive especially if you are doing the tour which stops by Puerto De Las Incas. At the top of the curvy road is a small Cristo Redentor, a couple of souvenir shops, brandy and hot chocolate to warm you up as it is windy and freezing even on a sunny day, and the happy knowledge that you...
