We get into the Escoipe Quebrada (rupture) on our way to Cachi and we will discover green colored stone mountains which slightly reduce our path and take our breath away once we can visualize the route from further, but on a subtle way, the desert will win terrain against the jungle and on our trip to Cachi we discover stone and red colored sand covered mountains where the green cactus appears on the road to reach then to the Valle Encantado (enchanted valley), natural door of Los Cardones National Park that is appreciated on our final stretch, where the highest spot of Cachi trip is found at Piedra del Molino at 3400 meters over the sea level where we can see the last green mountains, which are full of tiny rivers, so then we get into the park´s desert and reaching the Recta de Tin Tin where on each side of the path our view get lost in the distance and the only we can see are the green and yellow cactus which mimetic with the landscape and some animals.
A few kilometers further, before reaching Cachi, we visit a small town called Payogasta until we reach our last destination; Cachi town, called like that due to a quechua word which means “salt” because the natives of the area got confused with the Nevado mountain top with a saltmine.
Once we reach Cachi our looks are centered on its gorgeous stone square and where the church with its three bells, invites you to know it from the inside. We walk around Cachi, over its stoned streets from different heights surrounded by mountain peaks which produce us to look up in the sky, that blue sky we will remember every time we think about Cachi.
