Make sure you visit this natural wonder, a memorable experience with a local Friend who showed me all the special spots along the canyon. Definitely worthwhile and one of my highlight days in Argentina.

It is more then 30 km on an unpath road - but it is worth doing it. We would recommend to do it from Nihuil to Valle Grande. You always think it can't become better but then you are suprised again by amazing views.

Fantastic and absolutely stunning drive, it takes a day but it is really worth it. It is easy to do with a normal car if you drive carefully

I recommend this place to anyone going to Mendoza. The route you have to drive to access is amazing and have amazing views and when you arrive to the Canon you will realise this is an amazing place to spend a summer afternoon.
