Los Cardones National Park
Los Cardones is a spectacular national park located at the Calchaquíes Valleys, in the province of Salta, covering 65.000 hectares of hills and gorges, with an altitude ranging 2.700 and 5.000 m., dominated by Cardon Cactuses.
The maximum altitude can be found at the Cerro Negro (5.226 m.) which presides unique sceneries, like the Cachipampa plain, the Enchanted Valley, the Obispo Slope, the Tin-Tin Straight road as it traced by the Incas, one of the few churqui forests and the largest cardon cactus woodland in Argentina.
Visitors should not miss the Piedra del Molino, a huge piece sculpted in granite with its 3.600 m. sanctuary. The view is unbeatable. There are about 100 bird species, the condor being the most important one.
