The Andes route

While passing between Mendoza and the Chilean border you will see some exceptional panoramas and staggeringly beautiful scenery. You will see the little village of Potrerillos with its splendid artificial lake. After that comes Uspallata, which is the main village on the road and the last opportunity to fill up with petrol. In Picheuta you can see one of the oldest stone bridges in the country. You will also pass by Puente del Inca which is a completely out-of-the-way tiny village. You will see the Aconcagua peak which is at an altitude of 22 835 ft.making it the highest mountain outside Asia, and the highest point in both the Western and the Southern Hemisphere.
