Packrafting in Hua Hum

Packrafting in Hua Hum gorge, Chile and Argentina border

A little known rafting jewel between Chile and Argentina hidden deep in Valdivian rain forest crosses the main ridge of the Andes in the lowest pass of only 600m. The river shaped a canyon of cliff walls covered in vertical green garden of ferns, moss, red arayan trees. It is hard there to concentrate on paddling trough the river rapids while all you want to do is admire the forest and crystal clear water of Hua Hum river gorge.

Between The Andes and the jungle

Between The Andes and the jungle - Paragliding from Loma Bola above Villa Nouges, Sierra de Aconquija, Tucuman, Argentina

The first day on the other side of the Andes above the humid yungas jungle in Argentina. Grassy takeoff of Loma Bola and lots of locals in the air welcomed me back to Tucuman. Nice soft thermals and never ending green blanket of vegetation below me is a change from the Atacama desert. Two hours in the air on the first day combined with great views of the high ranges at the back. Let’s see what Argentina holds for us.
