Cuesta del Obispo, Salta

4.8
#2 of 20 in Parks in Salta
Hold on to the edge of your seat as your car winds its way up a precarious mountain road at Cuesta del Obispo. Not for the faint of heart, the scenic but intimidating road offers little in the way of safety measures and can cause motion sickness. You won't regret the journey, though, when you burst through the clouds and arrive at the cactus-filled plains at the road's end, perched atop a plateau 3,348 m (10984 ft) above sea level. Drive a rented car up the road or take a guided tour, which may be the best way to relax and enjoy the view. A visit to Cuesta del Obispo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Salta day trip planner to plot your vacation.
