Abra Pircas Negras – 4,253m

Region III, Chile


We liked this pass a lot – great scenery, no traffic and a decent surface. Make sure you time your cycle right though – Chilean immigration is only open Thursday-Sunday in January and February so it isn’t possible to cross Paso Pircas Negras the rest of the year.
