Ruta 40, Ar­gentina

CLEO (Singapore) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Run­ning par­al­lel to the An­des Moun­tains, this stretch of high­way is one of the long­est in the world. It takes any­one brave enough to tackle it through an as­ton­ish­ing 20 na­tional parks and the most in­cred­i­ble scenery. With grav­elled sec­tions, blind curves and strong winds, it’s def­i­nitely not a route for novice driv­ers and it’s rec­om­mended you rent a de­cent four­wheel drive. You’ll need around six weeks to do this epic drive com­fort­ably, but it’s one you’ll re­mem­ber for­ever. Start­ing south of the Bo­li­vian bor­der in La Quiaca, you’ll want to make sure you stop at the largest salt flat in the world, the Sali­nas

Gran­des, for the most beau­ti­ful out-ofthis-world land­scapes you can imag­ine. Other stand-out spots in­clude Cueva de las Manos in the Santa Cruz prov­ince, a cave fa­mous for its hand paint­ings dat­ing back some 13,000 years, and

Los Gla­cia­res Na­tional Park, which has some of the most ac­ces­si­ble glaciers in the world.
