Cuyo, the high peaks

In the valleys of La Rioja, Mendoza and San Juan, among leaves of grapevines, farms and wineries, visitors can go along the Wine Road, an attraction of international renown.

Cuyo - "desert country" in the Indian language - is the region of the high peaks, the snow-covered volcanes, and the large wilderness spreading from the Andes mountain range and foothills to the steppe.

The visit to Ischigualasto - Talampaya Natural Parks, is a true journey to the dinosaurs era. Ischigualasto, also known as "Valle de la Luna" (Moon Valley) because of the amazing diversity of forms and colours of its landscape shaped by erosion, is one of the world's most important paleontologic sites.

The Talampaya River Canyon reveals amazing multi-shaped layers in its high red walls. Pink flamingos, Andean ducks, "vicuñas" and "guanacos" cohabit freely in parks and natural reserves, while condors fly over the area.

The region displays the full splendour of the Central Andean Range. The Aconcagua (6.959 m) is the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, and its steep slopes are renown and respected by mountain climbers from all over the world.
