Cuyo y Norte
Northern provinces feature traces of pre-Columbian cultures, mingled with ruins of natives' villages, as well as forts and constructions dating back to the time of the Spanish conquest and colonization. This region offers landscapes full of contrast for tourists to enjoy (from the high peaks to the plains, the salt pans, and the subtropical rain forests) where Latin American culture took root.
Cuyo –desert country in the Indian language – is the region of the high peaks, the snow–covered volcanoes, and large wilderness spreading from the Andean mountain range and foothills to the steppe. The Aconcagua (6,959 m) is the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, and its steep slopes are renowned and respected by mountain climbers and skiers from all over the world.
