Cuesta del Portezuelo
A magnificent and winding cornice road that climbs the mountain through lovely landscapes and indulges us into panoramic views of the central valley from a viewpoint. You can continue to the rural town of Anquincila to take a rest by a stream. Some few kilometres further is Ancasti, with La Tunita Archaeological Park.
Around 47 km south of the capital city, near Capayán, lies the myrtle forest. These are “arrayanes del cerro” (mountain myrtles, which belong to the family of the Argentine Patagonia myrtle) and, together with other species, they make up a beautiful forest to discover on foot or on horseback. The 11 km-trail departs from Concepción.
Sierras de Ambato
Alongside Provincial Route 4, connecting the capital city with the summer villas of El Rodeo and Las Juntas, this area of mountains, streams and cascades is ideal to rest.
For experienced mountaineers, a climb to the 4,500 metre-high El Manchao hill is a wonderful experience. Multiple trails for trekking and horse-riding (occasionally condors can be seen) are an option, too. In Las Pirquitas dam, you can do nautical sports, zip-lining, rappelling and biking.
