Paso Pehuenche

Paso Pehuenche, an Andean mountain road

Pehuenche Pass is an international high mountain pass through the Andes, joining Chile and Argentina, at an elevation of 2.557m (8,389ft) above the sea level.

The road to the summit is paved in good shape The pass conects San Clemente (Chile) and Bardas Blancas (Argentina) and it is usually open from December to March. Exact dates depend on the state of the pass after the winter.

The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! It is the closest route to the route between the Las Leñas ski center and Malargüe (Argentina) and Linares and Talca (Chile), after passing through a zone of rivers and protected areas.
