The northwest of Argentina provides travelers a unique experience. In contrast to the refined cosmopolitanism of Buenos Aires or the icy expanses and forest-covered mountains of Patagonia, the north suggests the ways in which the national history of Argentina is bound up with that of the rest of South America. The main, and most visible, connector is the Andes mountain range that runs up and down the length of the continent. The mountains have shaped not just a shared geography but also a shared history. This is most evident in the pre-Inca and Inca ruins that can be seen as part of a tour of Argentina in the northwest as well as in the colonial-era architecture still evident in the cities of Salta and San Miguel de Tucuman. Visit Argentina in the north and the landscapes of your camera and your mind will be filled with the beauty of foothills, passes, and gorges, wind-swept and wind-carved panorama that stands witness to the passage of time. Deep colors, sometimes in single shades and sometimes in rainbows, seem to infuse the jutting natural rock formations. Salta is an excellent town to use as a base for exploration of the countryside. Founded by Spanish settlers in 1582, Salta has deep history reflected in the layout of the citys historical center and the architecture of its churches, colonial monuments, and old houses. Cerro San Bernardo, a high hill overlooks the city and provides spectacular views at sunset. A cable car, called a teleferico, runs from the base in Parque San Martin to the top of the hill. Theres also a road as well as a trail that can be climbed on foot. The nearby attractions are just as captivating. One of the most popular ways to see this inspiring landscape is by riding the Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds), which runs from the town of Salta to the Viaducto de la Polvorilla, a distance of 134 miles (217 km). The elevation rises gradually, from 3,894 feet (1,187 m) around Salta, descending slightly into the valley, and then alternately climbing up zigzags and curls and winding through viaducts and tunnels to reach the maximum altitude of 13,780 feet (4,200 m) above sea level at the final stop. Train service includes a dining car, medical service, and guides assisted by audio and visual material. A bit further north, and must see attractions if traveling through this part of Argentina are Quebrada de Humahuaca, Oucara de Tilcara, Cerro de los Siete Colores, located near the town of Jujuy. The gorgeous Quebrada de Humahuaca has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
