Quebrada de las Conchas

The Quebrada de las Conchas, also known as Quebrada de Cafayate, is a nature reserve that is located within the Calchaquíes Valleys. Through the ravine and within the reserve runs the Las Conchas rive rwhere the trace of National Route 68is located, which joins the
town of Cafayate with the city of Salta. Along its route, landscapes of very varied colors and geoforms of great variety can be seen, among which the Devil's Throat and the amphitheater of reddish sedimentary rocks stand out. In the past (when the past was humid) these formations were waterfalls of fresh water and due to the flow of concentrated water they eroded the stone, which today amazes due to its special configuration. Other geoforms that can be seen on the side of the route are: The Amphitheater, El Fraile, El Sapo, las Ventanas, Los Castillos, etc. and about 7 km from Cafayate Los Médanos, a deposit of fine calcareous aeolian sands.
