Abra de Quiron – 4,182m

Provincia de Salta, Argentina


The road to from Santa Rosa to this pass in a remote part of the Argentine Puna has plenty of sandy and corrugated sections, but it is still an easy climb. The descent down a valley to the small settlement of Salar de Pocitos is pleasant, though again the surface isn’t very good.
