Travel Tips for Uspallata

Uspallata Pass

by cybergenic

Uspallata Pass ( c.12,500 ft (3,810 m) high, over the Andes between Mendoza, Argentina, and Santiago, Chile. A trail—and later a rough road—for men and pack animals was used before the Transandine Railway (1910–82) was built. The Pan-American Highway now runs through the pass. In 1817 José de San Martín sent part of his patriot army through the pass to fight the Spanish royalists in Chile. The Christ of the Andes statue stands in the pass. Mt. Aconcagua towers to the north. Vivd colours and massive rocks faces carving in and out of the landscape.
Nearly every direction you look you can see snow capped peaks in the distance keeping an eye on you deep below.

Beautiful Landscape

by MEdelmann


The Uspallata canyon is one of the most fascinating landscapes I have ever been. For me it looks a little bit similar with the Grand Canyon in the United States.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
When we went though the canyon, the had to stop sometimes because many of our group wanted to take pictures.

You will understand it if you look at these pictures. It seemed that the mountains lightened. They had such vibrant and spectacular colours!

Hmmm, it' s pity that I didn't take more pics of these mountains... but I was not soo photo-addicted that time and I also had co-drivers ...

Uspallata Canyon

by MEdelmann


This is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever made .... look at these wonderful colors!
------------------------------------------------------------------ The Uspallata Canyon is a long valley which streches from the chilenian border (at more than 3000 meters!) down to the small village of Uspallata, which gave the canyon the name.

The smal river on picture is Rio Mendoza, named after the town, which we went.

There will come much more about Mendoza soon on my Mendoza page

The border station

by MEdelmann


On the picture left you can see the argentinian flag which is part of the border station with Chile.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Beware of taking photos... it´s strictly forbidden! They look to you. I only took this one photograh of the flag because I didn´t want to get into droubles with the police. The controls are very strict. You have to open your suitcase and show EVERYTHING you have ...

BUT if you give them 20 US-dollars, they will let you pass .....

THAT should be strictly forbidden !!! :-(((((

Cerro de Los Siete Colores

by Trekki

Just some miles off Uspallata, there is a unique formation, showing multicolor effects.
It is called "Cerro de los siete colores".

A bit difficult to find, but if you are on your own with a car, just ask in Uspallata, the people will show you the way on a map.
It's east of town, approx. 10 km.
