Argentina: Ruta Nacional 53 – Road Through the Andes

One of the most spectacular drives in the northern Argentinian province of Jujuy is Routa Nacional RN 53. It branches off at Pumamarca and goes up to 4170 meter in elevation via colorful mountains with giant cordon cacti everywhere. After the high pass, the road twists and turns in many switchbacks descending toward the Great Salt Desert.
