The Garden of the Republic - An oasis more than green, in the north of Argentina

One of the novel crossings and without height above sea level. Suitable for lovers of trekking and nature. Touring the intense greens of Tucumán, the high meadows of Tafi del Valle, with the indescribable view to the south is a free invitation to the wonderful world of northern nature. And if on top of that we add an attractive route between valleys and great mountains, crossing rivers and ascending steep slopes, we are talking about an important adventure that completes us with little explored nature.
