You can see it from the car it is a rock but it is not a must stop with place. Everything around is so beautiful that this is not so special

Nice to look at as you drive by as it’s right along the highway. I don’t think it requires a stop unless you need a rest or want a particular view for a photo.

If travelling along Ruta 68 and able to stop easily it is worth a quick photo opportunity. If in a hurry you see it clearly from the roadside as you drive past.

Easily observed from the window of the car. No need to stop, No need to get out of the car. It's a rock. Instead drive on another 5 km direction Calafate to Los Colorados and have a walk in a truly spectacular valley.

El obelisco is right on the road from cafayate to salta so very convenient to make a quick stop. Hard to believe it is natural!

We stopped at El Obelisco as part of our drive along Routa 68 and one of the many stops with the Quebrada de la Conchas. Every stop is worth it as they are all so different in both shape and color. Extremely beautiful scenery and rock formations. Spectacular in every way. Highly recommended.

If you didn't know better, you'd think you are in Egypt. This reddish rock formation appears as if it had been carefully carved by human hand into one of those gigantic obelisks, It just appears on the side of the road, as you dirve towards Cafayate.

This is a small place next to the road, nothing more that the obelisco. Who is interesting, but not extraordinary. We stop only few mins.

Geological column formed naturally in the shape of an obelisk (mainly reminiscent of the Obelisk of Buenos Aires). Few tours stop because it is clearly visible from the bus. Anyway, the surroundings are very beautiful.
