Ruta 40 Argentina
Topic: Route 40

About

The mystical route 40 borders the Andes Mountains from the Puna to the southern Glaciers. Atop the beauty and magical nature surrounding this highway all along, the trace has a deep cultural and historical significance.
Description
Traveling around Highway 40 is an outstanding trip alternative. Needn't to take all the luxury and comfort of a sophisticated vacation, nor to let aside the adventure and outstanding sights in order to be chilling. Route 40 runs through majestic landscapes, rich in sights and culture that are a treat to our senses side by side the Andes Mountains from the nothernmost beautiful Jujuy to the southern and magical Megallen Straight. But that's not all, for it's not just about the landscape, but also about the amazing activities that can be done throughout it's broad extension, from hiking to skiing, from wine tasting to a superb gourmet experience, route 40 blends pleasure and glamour for the eyes and the palate. A must in a lifetime experience!

Topic: Route 40 Tour

The Old Route 40, started in Kilometer 0 in the heart ......

.. of Mendoza City. I visited this City several Times, since the beginning of the era of the Digital Camera and Internet on the WWW I was there in the year 2006, hunting old tractors, in this case a David Brown 50D 6 cylinder made in England, ....

Touring around Mendoza with Bob Frassinetti

One of the things I love the most about my job is the fact that I’m always on the move, always hunting for awesome treasures in and around this beautiful country that is Argentina.

This time I’m in Mendoza, a breathtaking city at the bottom of the Andes Mountains; home of the KM 0 of the marvelous Route 40, my favorite place in the whole wide world.

Such was my good luck this time that I managed to find a cozy small hotel on the roadside of Route 40!

The city of Mendoza was founded early in the Colonial times, in 1561. The Incas had reached the region we know today as Cuyo, and more precisely Mendoza in their late expansion years, just before they were conquered by the Spaniards. Therefore, this region was a greatly civilized area, known for its stupendous ecosystem and its great Pre Columbian constructions as well as its refined culture.

Today, more than 400 years after its foundation, Mendoza is a regional metropolis and a melting pot between the Argentine and the Chilean cultures, for it’s in the borderline between this neighboring countries.

Mendoza withholds Argentina’s finest wine production and it’s a precious tourism spot for travelers from around the globe. The brilliant combination of natural resources, winter sports, all year long natural spa facilities and the imponent Aconcagua Mountain –the highest most peak of the American Continent- makes of Mendoza a dream destination for every single one of us who loves to enjoy life’s pleasures and treats.

The city of Mendoza is also the capital of the equally named province. This is a modern and clean, nature friendly capital, features a broad and rich cultural and artistic life.

A stone throw away from downtown Mendoza the visitor finds the ever-growing and improving fine vineyards, wineries and boutique wine producers. Most of these are open all year long for visitation and wine trying. Even better is to enjoy this wonderful option during the month of March, when it’s still summer warm in the region, in the fabulous Wineries Classic and Sports car Rally.

Among the rainbow of urban and ecology friendly tourism that can be found in Mendoza, there are several interesting sights within the city, such as the gorgeous trolleybus transport system.

This transport system was lately installed in Argentina by the late 1940s, specially located in Buenos Aires, but covering other major cities such as Mendoza and Rosario. However the pass of time and the evolution in the automobile industry made it fade away from the rest of the country except for Mendoza, Rosario and the latter addition of Cordoba city in the Mediterranean region of our country.

The first Trolleys of Mendoza were German, made by the famous Mercedes Benz in 1957 in Buenos Aires. Latter on Japanese origin vehicles came to replace the German ones Nissan / Tokyu Car / Toshiba. Most of which were maintained in such proper way that still running by the end of the millennium.

Among the interesting features of the trolley system in Mendoza is the fact that a big commercial shift took place in the mid 1980s when the province exchanged commercially its fine wines for mechanical goods with the USSR by means of the Uritzky, model ZIU 682 that complemented the Japanese fleet.

After the dissolution of the USSR, and together with the growth and development of Mendoza –implying the need of a broadening of their transport system- new imports were made from Germany and Japan to attend the growing demand.

 

So Back to the infromation, .... 

This unique ecology friendly means of transport provides Mendoza with an even more appealing aesthetic to the visitor alike the local. While at the same time, the one of a kind scenario created by Mendoza’s unique features, invites locals and foreigners alike to discover this magic land of beauty and good living.

Description:

Travel Adventure Iruya and back, Argentina Travel by Bicycle to Iruya and a bit more, in Salta, Argentina. Iconic Travel Adventure of a Life Time with Bob Frassinetti More information see web site on Face Book. Iruya is a small town of population 4,299 (per the 2001 INDEC census) in northwestern Argentina. It is located in the Salta Province of northwestern Argentina, and is the capital of the Iruya Department. Located in the altiplano region along the Iruya river, Iruya sits nestled against the mountainside at an elevation of 2,780 meters (9,120 feet). It is very remote, located over 300 kilometers (190 miles) from the province capital of Salta, and a 50-km (31-mi) portion of the route to Iruya is unpaved. Nonetheless, the town is popular with tourists for its scenic location and townscape and friendly locals.

Iruya's name is derived from the Quechua language, meaning "brave straw" or "site of the high pastures"[2]. The town may date back to pre-Colombian origins.
