Get out of Mendoza's hustle and bustle and spend a day in the mountains. See the Pre-Andes, interesting small villages, stunning views of mountains and rivers, and stop by natural hot springs.

Make your way to the Pre-Andes Mountains, ascending to an altitude of 9,840 feet (3,000 m).
Admire the spectacular scenery en route to the picturesque Upsallata Valley, where you hike along the Pan-American Highway. The trail passes through small mountain villages like Picheuta, Polvaredas, and Punta de Vacas, continuing to the famous ski center of Penitentes.

Next, venture to Puente del Inca (Inca’s Bridge), approximately 8,924 feet (2,720 m) above sea level. At Las Cuevas River, see how thermal water flows under a natural bridge, before heading on to a nearby viewpoint near the Chilean border. Marvel at the impressive panorama dominated by the highest peak of Mount Aconcagua.

Depending on the weather, you might even visit the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) monument standing at 13,779 feet (4,200 m), built as a symbol of the Argentine-Chilean fraternity.
