Pleasant break from the city

The Teleferico in Salta is nice. Provides a great view of the city and I traveled during a great sunset moment. The mountain top is nice but I didn't spend much time up there before heading back down. I believe the ride was about $6 USD. It's a good value however, if you miss the teleferico while in Salta, life... More

The top of the mountain offers nice view if Salta but it's not that special just another panoramic view of a city.

Took our small children up the hill. They loved the telepherique. The park at the top was surprisingly pleasant, welcome cooler, greener relief from the city below. Good views. The telepherique station is quaint and attractive.

take the trip up the small mountain and you'll see a vast valley with different mountain chains in the distance. It really gives you a feel that you are part of geography.

It's a fairly simple deal. There's a good view from the top and a slightly overpriced cable car to get there. There's a restaurant at the top too (we didn't stop in), and a nice bit for photos where there are some artificial waterfalls (a little hard to explain...).

Besides the architecture, Salta has naturally beautiful scenery created by its subtropical highland climate, different from the desert climate of its wine regions. Salta’s architecture is beautifully colorful as seen in photo left page taken from atop San Bernardo Hill, 968’ above the city and accessible by aerial tram.

We took the tram to see Salta. Great views. No wait for us. Able to see the whole town from up the mountain. Nicely landscaped. Easy to get around.

The views of the city were great, the water features well-designed and a nice enough walk down. We had plenty of time in Salta so it was a couple of hours well spent. If your time was limited I'm not sure I would put this down a must-do, but if you have the time and enjoy seeing a city from... More

It's recommended that you do the last trip on the Teleferico and catch the sunset from on high. Not possible in Summer unfortunately, as the last departure is at 7.30. However, it's a great ride with wonderful views. The cool breeze and the panorama below is well worthwhile when you arrive too. On the day I went it was women's... More

It offers a nice view of the whole city but it is a bit expensive. You can also go to Cerro San Bernardo by taxi and you can have a great view from there. No need to go by tram.
