GLOBE TREKKER ROAD TRIP: ANDES
Zay starts a 3,000 mile trip along Ruta 40 through the Andes at the Argentina-Bolivia border.
Inspired by Che Guevara's "The Motorcycle Diaries," Zay begins the 3, 000 mile trip along Ruta 40 through the Andes. Starting his trek near the Argentina-Bolivia border, he crosses into the brilliant white salt flats of the Salinas Grandes, takes in the kaleidoscopic natural wonders of 7 Colors Hills, stops at the oldest continuously inhabited city of Tilcara, explores pre-Columbian ruins in Pucara, drives the hair-raising roads to the little town of Cachi and visits the National Park of Leoncito. Zay next makes his way to the green valleys of Mendoza Province where he fuels up at the ultra-modern O'Fournier bodega before ending his journey beneath Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the western and southern hemispheres.
