I will pick you up in my 2018 Toyota Hilux 4x4 at 10am, at your Airbnb. We will quickly stop for breakfast, and then head for the mountains. Our first stop will be hotel Termas de Villavicencio, where we will stop for a restroom break and a snack. From there we will start on route 52, which will take us to the famous "365 Curves" ascent into the breath taking scenery of the Andes Mountains. On the way up we will see llamas (guanacos) and Argentine Fox as we climb up to 9700 ft (2956 meters). Once we reach the highest point, we will have a spectacular view of Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the southern and western Hemisphere at 22841 ft ( 6962 meters). From there we start our way down, and make a stop in the small village of Uspallata, were we will stop for lunch. After lunch we go to the 7 Colors Mountain an take in the spectacular view from there. At that point we start our way back onto route 7, and then onward towards Mendoza. We will then stop at the small village of Potrerillos, and take advantage of the amazing views of the lake. From there we go on to the village of Cacheuta, home of the thermal spas. I will then take you back to you Airbnb. This trip can take between 6 to 8 hours, depending on how many pictures and stops you want to make. I will provide bottled water and healthy snacks.
