Argentina: Ruta Nacional 7 – Road to the Aconcagua

The road from Mendoza through the Andes is absolutely stunning. The route slowly leaves behind all the vineyards of Mendoza Valley and twists and turns and climbs to the Aconcagua peak, the highest mountain in the South America. This is Runa Nacional 7, one of the major roads in the country, crossing the entire Argentina from abuse is Aires and into Chile. From Mendoza, it’s a steady rise up from 1200m to 3200m, almost into the thin air! Vista and panoramas are surreal all along.
