Description: Leaving the city along the National route 7, our trip begins at Lujan de Cuyo. Soon after, following the route you will leave the countryside behind in order to enter the pre-mountain range area. The first stop will be in Potrerillos, a small mountain town, with weekend residences belonging to the inhabitants of Mendoza. There is also an unbeatable view of the Potrerillos dam which forms a breathtaking artificial lake. The following section of the route leads to Uspallata, framed by mountainous landscapes with changing colours, filled with various geological formations and many tunnels on the road. The trip continues towards several other small mountain towns, Polvaredas, Punta de Vacas, Penitentes, until you reach Puente del Inca, a natural bridge where Las Cuevas river has drilled into the mountains forming this incredible natural attraction. Close to the border, a wonderful viewpoint allows us to see the Aconcagua Mt, which stands at 6,962 meters (22,841 feet) above sea level. On the way back we will stop at Uspallata.
