We started from Córdoba - we had heard from a fellow backpacker that Los gigantes was pretty cool. We packed our small bags hoping to drop our big ones in a locker overnight.. typical us we were late & so didn't have time to put them in a locker. You buy the tickets from Sarmiento - it's a company & their ticket booth is located in the 'new' part of the main bus terminal in Córdoba. We'd read that the bus leaves as 8am, but ours actually was at 7:45am.. we were also abit unorganised so were supposed to buy food before we went but that didn't happen.. the bus ride was pretty cool - mainly on dirt roads when you got out the city.. the bus stopped at a stop called 'parador del valle' for about half an hour whist the bus driver had a coffee. We managed to buy some good sandwiches and biscuits there. Also a coffee! But abit pricey.. Literally 5 mins more on the bus & the bus driver will stop at the bus stop at Los Gigantes. There is a sign just before this saying 'La gigantes - ratonde' which is another way to get there. We asked the bus driver when they were coming back the next day & he said normally it would be 11:50 (so you generally would stay the night), but because it was a public holiday they were only coming at 5pm (so make sure you check).. We were heading for Casa Nuerve which is a little place to stay about 2km from the 2nd bus stop towards the mountain. We got there and asked the lady if there was a room (we winged it hoping there would be a room).. she didn't speak English but we managed to understand that No there were no rooms but they have this massive spare room thing with loads of mattresses so we could just stay there for the night (there were no pillows or blankets but we just wore thermals and seemed to be fine) for 150 pesos per person / night.. we signed in then she then showed us the direction that we should head and what to follow. From the Ada nuevas track you can get to the peak around the north side, past La Mano Del hombre (on maps.me). The weather was beautiful so there were lots of other hikers. We'd heard that we should probably get a guide but it was fairly easy to follow the little rock pile signs, and we managed to go past a few waterfalls, get to some awsome viewpoints - this is one of the ways up from casa nuevas. You follow little piles of small rocks - we managed to not get too lost & never felt scared or worried we were going to get lost (with good weather you can tell which way you should be going).. there were plenty of small fresh running streams up there & we filled up our bottles many times. There were also many campers. there is a little cafe down at casa nuevas with tasty empanadas, pizza and cervesa, as well as home made bread & other goodies to buy to take up the mountain. The next day we walked along the road to la Rotonda which is about 2 km from casa Nuevas & is the other main place to start. You have to sign in and pay 100 pesos here before you go up. You could also stay the night here, and we had a coffee before we started our hike. Here you can either go to the cross which is cool & seems to be the most popular track, or you can go to the peak (think it was called Magote or something like that but on maps.me its near the cave and 'refugio don antonio').. we felt a little lost getting to the peak sometimes making up our own paths, but never felt disorientated so didn't stress.. from la rotonda to the peak and back took us about 5 hours. We had amazing weather so make sure you check before we went.. headed back to the bus stop around 5pm and the bus hobbled along about 10mins late. Overall was a great great adventure & we'd recommend it to anyone!!!

Our guide was amazing and showed us the best parts of the mountains including the beautiful waterfalls. He shared some facts about Cordoba and the mountain ranges along the way and even had some extra food for us when we ran out. Try to go on a clear day so you can see the beautiful view. And definitely check out the waterfalls!!

I went to Los Gigantes a zillion times. I trekked and climbed this mountains once and again. But it doesn't mind at all how many times I go there: every time the magnificence of the landscape won't fail to amaze and surprise me. An absolute must go in Córdoba hills.

If you have a day to spare, you won’t regret it. Trekking Los Gigantes is a wonderful outdoor experience, with fantastic views, wonderful sceneries and very rewarding. You must get a guide, or you risk getting lost. Clouds can move in fast and you will not know where you are. It tales 2.5 hours to get to the top (el Mogote), or you can stop half way at the Cerró de la Cruz. It can be cold in the morning, hot at mid day and cold again in the evening. Take plenty of water. And prepare for a day tríp you will never forget

An absolute highlight of our trip to Provincia de Cordoba. To get there, you need to take a bus from Cordoba at 8-ish in the morning, the company is called Sarmiento. You should technically fill in a registration form once at Gigantes at a local hosteria where you can also buy some basic supplies. We were not charged a single peso. Bring your own gas stove, food, sleeping bag and a tent/tarp. There is a number of refugios but as they are private, they are all locked, so you must be completely self-reliant. The trails are poorly marked, follow cairns (pircos) - they can get difficult to find especially if it gets misty! You can easily spend two full days there. What helps is an offline map, GPS or such - go to wikiloc.com to get a better idea. Don't forget that you are on private land so do not leave any trash. Sarmiento will get you back to the city at midday but make sure you consult this with the driver. They leave at 12-ish from Gigantes but you should be at the bus stop at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure. Hitch-hiking is also possible, but do not count on it.

Los Gigantes is one of Cordoba city surrounding mountain chain, at only 2 hours car trip from downtown thru Camino de las Altas Cumbres. You will enjoy the landscapes at every turn, both in Summer and Winter (can be closed temporarily during snow season). If you are short in time can plan for a 4 hour round trip, but it´s worth planning a full day to be able to visit one of the many hidden rivers (where you can also practice flyfishing from October to April) and do some trekking or mountain biking.

If you like hiking, Log Gigantes is one of the best places to visit in the Wold. There are many tracks to walk with different difficulty. In the way you will cross rivers, caves mountains and a unique vegetation.

If you have the chance don't forget to climb some of the hill like The Mogotes and Cerro La Cruz. The view from there is breathtaking!!!

Also if you are into climbing you will find many routes to try your expertise ;)

Along one of the most scenic routes in the hills of Córdoba province, and just a short drive from the Capital, this area boasts amazing paths for the casual hiker, as well as massive boulders to climb using the required gear. Bring water, and a few extra SD cards for the extra photos!

Awesome hike. There are two ways: one from the north that takes about six hours round-trip. The second is from the base it's about 4 to 5 hours. Unfortunately the access is complicated due to lack regulations. There is fee to park and some sections are restricted. I have heard of a person scaring hikers with a rifle. This is a private property. The government should make it public but it is more interested in other things. The views are stunning.
