Into the Puna with Socompa Adventure Travel

YouTube video

We were fortunate to be able to experience a four-day adventure from Salta into the Puna with Socompa Adventure Travel. The Puna, located in northwestern Argentina has an average elevation of more than 10,000 feet, with passes reaching close to 15,000. We tell people there really is nothing there, but what we mean by that is, there are no real towns, no cafés around the corner, no real civilization – the expansive area is just too remote, rugged and windblown for much other than miners (these days, seeking lithium) and adventurous travelers seeking the epitome of an off-the-beaten-path trip with spectacular landscape. We are hooked on the Puna … and you will soon see why!
