From Mendoza we will head southwest towards the town of Tupungato, to drive among the vineyards fields in the Uco Valley. The vines reach the slopes of the Andes mountain range and their green contrast with the white of the snowy mountains.
The route offers superb views of the highest mountains, ‘El Plata’ and the imposing Tupungato volcano. After about 140 km we will arrive at El Manzano Histórico, a small village located at the foot of the mountain range and core of the Natural Reserve of the same name. This is one of the main tourist attractions of the area.
In El Manzano, authentic Gauchos will be waiting for us. Then we will ride the horses, and by trotting, we will explore into the deep valleys and towering mountains of the Andes. We will arrive at the Pampa del Durazno, an old native ritual center, and will end the ride at the Portezuelo de la Piedra Blanca. The best way to see the natural beauty of the Andes is on horseback.
We will culminate the ride with an Argentine Asado prepared by the Gauchos in the traditional style.
