Early in the morning, we will leave from our selected hotels to start the tour boarding the Mendoza river. From here, we can enjoy impressive views of Cordón del Plata and Potrerillos Dam.
Our first visit will be in Uspallata, an area occupied by Huarpes indians and the southernmost point of the Inca Empire. From here, we will visit some villages like Picheuta, Polvaredas, Punta de Vacas and Los Penitentes ski center. There if you want, you can use the chairlift (entrance fee not included) to enjoy beautiful panoramic views.
We will continue with our tour by Inca Bridge, an impressive natural work that has thermal water springs. We will visit the viewpoint of Mount Aconcagua, and finally the Las Cuevas Village, located at 3200 meters above sea level.
Between Las Cuevas Village and the International Tunnel we will find the route that allows us to climb to the Cristo Redentor, which is only open in summer. This beautiful monument symbolizes the union between Argentines and Chileans.
After this wonderful day, we will be returning to our hotels approximately 18:30 hs.
During the summer, if we climb to Cristo Redentor, the tour can finish around 20:00 hs.
