Near the highest volcano on the planet

BEWARE there is only 1 hotel in the whole trip, and it is 200 km each way from Fiambalá in Catamarca. However, the views are from OUT OF THIS WORLD.
Even if it was sunny and around 30 ° C in Fiambalá when we left off, it dropped to almost zero halfway up. Remember that this is The Andes! Bring your best winter jackets and warm clothes, as you will see snow on reaching the pass. The views are AMAZING. You can also see some animals along the drive.
NOTE: check with the gendarmes BEFORE leaving, as the pass is closed most of the time, especially in winter.

A worthy trip

I went last week, Oct 2016, and the weather was perfect. It had recently snowed, so there were rests of snow along the road. Take into account that if you want to explore the area you will need fuel. In Las Grutas they can sell you. Ask in Gendarmería at Customs before you cross the border. Go to Laguna Verde, in Chile and then come back and explore the area, which is amazing. Take water because you'll need it. Wild animals along the road, like vicuñas and guanacos. It is really beautiful
