    Ullum Vally San Juan Province Argentina

    by mannymiami Written Feb 25, 2003

    This picture was taken in June 2002 which is winter in Argentina. This is what the landscape looks like. Its a very dry area and its the ultimate topography for grape growing for the wine industry . This was on the way to the park in the Ullum Valley.

    One thing I really enjoyed about the Ullum Valley is the grilling steaks out in the open the Argentine way. Argentine beef is excellent and very inexpensive. That day we drank great wine from this region and ate lots of steak.

    The Vally of Ullum

    by mannymiami Written Feb 25, 2003

    The valley of Ullum is about 15 miles west from the center of the city of San Juan. Its at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Here you can get as close to nature as possible. One can find many camping sites and and hiking paths. This picture is taken from the center of a lake that in the Argentine winter dries up. Here in the center of this place I discoverd complete silence in the middle of the outdoors. I also was lucky to witness wild horses calloping in the wilderness. One of the most beautiful places I've seen.

    The Cuyo region consists of the Andean provinces of Mendoza and San
    Juan, and adjacent San Luis. The area retains a strong regional identity,
    with a unique mestizo population reflecting the influence of neighboring
    Chile. An important agricultural region, particularly famous for its grapes
    and wine, it lies in the shadow of the massive Andes and is visited for its
    many sporting and recreational activities, such as climbing and trekking.
    Wineries, hidden mountain villages and the centers of Mendoza and San
    Juan are other attractions.

    This place is a very arid dry desert national park. It almost has a moonlike feel to the atmosphere.
