Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worth the drive from Salta. We rented a car and drove there and back in one day. The scene is just like Page Arizona without the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed all the rock formations and as long as you don't get stuck behind a tour bus the view is great. At the time we were there there was not very much open in the town at the end of the road which was too bad as there looked like there was a lot of restaurants and shops/galleries.

Every stop in Cafayate is beautiful but this is one of the very best.

It’s like being in another world.

It’s very busy but that’s to be expected - you won’t be disappointed.

From Salta is a 4 hr drive to Cafayate crossing these spectacular Quebrada de las Conchas, some of the country's most impressive rock formations with layers of stunning colors and unusual shapes creating a visual feast along this winding route.

This trip in Salta Province, Argentina, is a MUST DO… Winding roads, unbelievable landscapes and sceneries in the Andes which sometimes remind you about Cappadoce, Turkey or Petra in Jordan… Spectacular highlights like the Amfiteatro or the Gargantua del Diablo… Pass this way touring towards Cafayate, 2nd wine region of Argentina, where you can sip a Torrontes wine while remembering the outstanding natural beauties that you could admire on your way through the Quebrada de las Conchas…

Driving from Salta to Cafayate the scenery is really quite spectacular, especially the closer you get the Cafayate. Over the last 50km or so there are numerous features where you can stop and walk into the rock formations, most interesting being the Garganta Del Diablo, Anfiteatro and Los Colorados. There are also a couple of great viewpoints at Los Tres Croces and Los Castillos. Best of all, it’s all free!

I enjoyed the road from Salta to Cafayate more than other scenery roads in Salta. I had visited the area only when I was a little girl and so everything looked new to me. The landscape is quite dramatic in hues of red with many geologic formations that are attractive to the eye and great for photography.
The road is very good, not too difficult and not too high either, and it takes long because you want to stop at every step. If you are fit enough, don't miss the views from the several high viewpoints and short trails along the way.

Take a drive fro Salta down to Cafayate. The last 50 miles is really spectacular. Reminded me of the Badlands in the USA. There are plenty of places to stop, walk and take photos.

Very worth visiting.
There are multiple view points over 50+ km, however only really 3 major sights that involve a bit of a walk: garganta del diablo, el anfiteatro and los castillos. Garganta and the anfiteatro are within one km of each other, so it's easy to walk between the two. You probably only need about 1 hour to see both sites. To get here without a tour bus, take the flecha bus from Cafayate bus terminal. It stops at Garganta. Cost is 112 pesos. The bus leaves at 08.30, 10.30 and 14.00. Takes about 50 or so minutes. Beautiful scenery along the way! After you've seen Garganta, you can walk to the anfiteatro and have a look around. There is a bus stop right outside on the opposite side of the street where you can catch a bus back to Cafayate. Price is the same. Pay the driver when you get on. The bus comes at 13.25 and 15.55. other options invite hitch hiking! You don't get to see Los Castillos properly doing this, but you do get a glimpse on the bus. If you do want to take a tour, the are a few companies in Cafayate (e.g. ipuna) which will bring you here for about 850 pesos. The tour is at 2.30 p.m. and lasts for about 4-5 hrs. Can't tell you about the quality, but the Google reviews are not encouraging!!

Overall route 68 from Salta to Cafayate is very picturesque and Los Castilos (natural rock towers) are definitely one of the gems on this road.
