We took the teleférico to the top of cerro San Bernardo and had a great time there. You can just enjoy the view or take good photos with all the nature up there, but you can also buy souvenirs, exercise a bit. Another option is to walk to the top. Either way you'll surely have a great time.

We walked up the steps, counting as we climbed, and turning around frequently for better and better views of the city and the mountains. The top was also fun. We saw runners jogging up the steps for exercise, although we took it a bit more slowly. It was also easy to walk to the statue and the climb from the... More

You can take the cable cars up the hill (110 pesos per person) or walk the 1021 steps up to the top. We did the latter and it was a nice but hot walk up. At the top you have a good panoramic view og Salta and the surrounding mountains although the line to the cable cars ruins the views... More

We went up by cable car and did a small and easy hike back. The park at the summit is very well maintained. You can get only cold drinks in a small cafeteria. The views on top are really nice. Try to determine the location of your own hotel is a nice puzzle (sometimes). The path down is not too... More

The view is very scenic throughout the ascent. At the top there are places to eat, shop crafts, exercise, enjoy the panoramic view of the city, etc.

We took the cablecar up to the mountain. 55 pesos per person for one way, so 110 per person for up and down. Uphill you have a quite ok view on the city but it is not that special. You can have a drink there, do some outdoor fitness exercises on the machines, watch some people do aerobics and stuff,... More

We walked up the hill and the view along the way is of a barren and at times litter-strewn hill. The view from the top is good and there's some things to do, although the outdoor gym is useless and broken

Definitely a nice view although this hill is not that high above the city. You can easily reach the summit with the cable care and assuming you're reasonably fit, it is no problem walking down through the stairs in a small half an hour. Don't expect anything but the view up there: no decent cafeteria and not much else to... More

The view was in my opinion not very impressive, but the 1,000 steps hike up was a really good workout.
