If you spend any decent amount of time in Salta, you will be doing the Teleferico. It's decently priced and the views are pretty. Once on top, you can stroll for a while, buy some food, and admire the views. Just pay attention to either the people in front or the people behind as my wife and I would be... More

World class teleferico, just like the one in Quito. Nice cafes at summit too, relaxing place to enjoy a local beer.

A wonderful experience! I would totally recommend you to do this. El Cerro San Bernardo is a must in Salta! We just loved it!

Took tram ride to top of Bernard Hill. Beutiful view of the surrounding city below. Worth waiting for the city lights to light up. Great photographs on the way up and from the top. $6 us round trip with blue dollars. Worth the cost for the ride.

If you have an hour or so to spend, take the ride to the top of the mountain on a nice day. There are little walkways around, as well as vendors (same old stuff you see every place else) as well as a a coffee shop. I spent only 1/2 hour at they top and felt it was worth it.

We took the cable car up and then walked down. The views of the city and surroundings are superb and the area at the summit is very nicely landscaped. The cafe is a little basic so we settled for a bottled drink. There are a great many stairs going down and stout shoes are a necessity.

The cable cart offers some nice views, but it was incredibly hot, and they changed the price to 70 for a return or 35 just to go up! We enjoyed the walk a lot more!

The price is now 70 pesos each way… no discount for purchasing a round trip ticket. We did anyway to avoid queuing again at the top. We went on a Monday afternoon, around 3.30 and had to wait in line for about 25 minutes to get tickets, and same again to board the cable car. I sometimes get a bit... More

First, I had a 30% off coupon (which you can get in many of the free local guides that hotels and stores hand out). The ticket vendor refused to accept it. Second, this takes a lot of time and is either ridiculously hot in the summer or cold in the winter. If you've even been in a ski lift, you... More
