Argentina No man’s land.

I was expecting to pass from exiting Chile to entering Argentina within a few hundred meters. No so, there are about 40 km between getting stamped as departing Chile to getting a stamp in your passport to say you’ve now entered Argentina. Proper No Man’s Land.

Photography Tips

Think about the type of shot you’d like to capture, distant mountains, whitecaps, forests, vistas, lots to see. I had both long and short lenses at the ready, pullled over at least a dozen times.

Travel Information

Note this isn’t a 24 hour border, but just as well, you’d miss some spectacular views at night. I didn’t ask what happens if you leave on country and the other is closed when you get there? Presumably they count and know how many cars cross each side. I also don’t know which side plows the snow. Chains are sometimes mandatory. Always give yourself a buffer of both time and petrol. There are quite a few spots to pull over. Be courteous, don’t park on blind corners and respect that their are transport vehicles, so if you get out and walk be conscious of other drivers.
