Description

Today, I am inviting you to an expedition up to the two Puna giants: Dos Conos Volcano, of 5.800 y 5.900 meters high.

The Catamarqueña Puna give us a landscape full of colors, snow-capped peaks, vegas and salt flats that take us back to the past. Inca mark is present in this region. It lets us discover more about the amazing civilization who inhabited this zone 500 years ago.
