Good view, nice cable car

The old stations for the cable car are lovely and the view from the top offers a great view of the city.

As everyone knows, you can enjoy an amazing view from here :) Especially the night view of Salta was beautiful and romantic. We took a cablecar around 17:30 so we could see its day and night. Also we took a walk when coming down the mountain! Such a adventure as we did not climb down the route.

We enjoyed the hike up immensely. It took us 45 minutes at a leisurely pace with an 8 yr old. The Stations of the Cross are along the route.The view up top is wonderful. Cafe was disappointing so we only had drinks. Some of us took the teleferico down and enjoyed that as well.

We climbed the stairs to the top of Cerro San Bernardo. It's a good 30 minute walk for the averagely fit person. We went up late afternoon to catch the sunset. From the top you get stunning views of the city and surrounding mountains. We had a cloudless sky but there is always a city haze. This is a must... More

I walked up the stairs, takes about 30 mins up. It's a steep enough climb, but very do able. The top has lovely views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. I chose to walk back down as the cable car was 85 round trip and 45 one way, so it wasn't worth it. Walk back down takes around 20mins.

If in Salta you should definitely make the trip up Cerro San Bernardo. We chose to walk up it as we wanted the exercise. It is nearly steps the whole way to the top. I did it in my flip flops so it is not a difficult walk and only takes about 40 minutes to get to the top. On... More

We rode the cable car to the top of the hill. Luckily we went early enough so there was no line. It was extremely hot in the cable car as no air was entering and it was a hot sunny day. It was a nice place to stroll around on top of the hill. There was a grassy area, an... More

We walked from the monument to the top of Cerro San Bernado. The path was mainly stairs but wide enough for people to pass each other going up and down. It is very popular with the locals who use the stairs as a form of exercise. Once we were at the top we walked around the waterfalls/water features and there... More

I walked up the hill. It was stairs till the top, not very challenging. On the top you have a good view over Salta. The city is not very impressive, but its great to see the mountains at the horizon.
