No one sees the great statue anymore, because the main road goes through a 2-mile-long tunnel also named after our Redeemer. Drive on -- and be thankful the road between Santiago and Mendoza is paved with more than good intentions. Praise the Lord!

Plan the whole day to visit this town and the statue. We drove from Tupungato at 11am and came back at 10 pm. The route 7 to Las Cuevas was very beautiful surrounded by red mountains (really red), flowers and attractions along the way. From Las Cuevas we drove 30 minutes up to the mountain top where the Christ Redeemer... More

The cherry on a beautiful trip is the possibility of ascending to the top of the Andes above 4000 meters to see the Christ statue on the border between Chile and Argentina. The final ascent is kind of tricky with dangerous slides and a lot of rock on the way. Weather has to be very good to be even allow... More

Took bus tour to the Chile / Argentina border, high in teh Andes. If you don't like heights ... don't go. The drive from Mendoza is about 3 hours with a number of small stops. You start at 750 m (think of a bottle of wine), and the asphalt is excellent until about 3100m altitude. Views are fantastic. The last... More

You heard about Moses parting the red sea, well here you can see a great landmark dividing Chile and Argentina. The road up is sinuous so be careful, those going up will have the priority here so make way for them and stop your vehicle to let them pass on your way down. It's at 4100 mts/ 13451 ft. above...

The last 8 kilometers on a bumpy road with amazing views on the Andes (Aconcagua and "fellow" mountains...).Absolutely impressive. And at the top (statue of Cristo Redentor) you can even say you've "visited" Chile (a small part of it at this location is Chilean....)

I took the bus to go by the Andes and it was my best trip in bus I ever have. The Andes are beautiful and this route have multiple landscapes that are incredible!

We got the top seats front seats in a bus and really enjoyed the view! The road is spectacular! It's in a really good shape, so it didn't feel dangerous, but up in the mountains I could feel how thin the air was, so be careful if you're susceptible to altitude sickness.
