Crossing Gran Chaca
Gran Chaco is a very large flat area with a size more than 10 times larger than the Czech Republic. It is located in northern Argentina, southern Bolivia and the western part of Paraguay. There are savannas, wetlands and sparse forest. There are large pastures of cattle. There are not many points of interest in the area outside the hard-to-reach Parque Nacional Chaco, Copo and el Impenetrable. The area can be easily viewed only on long-distance bus lines
The starting point for the Gran Chaca crossing is the town of Resistencia. The bus to Salta, which is 820 km away, departs at 17:45.
Driving through Gran Chaco

Rare Quebracho trees with very hard wood and a high content of Tannin grow on Chaco, so they were mined in a large
After a twelve hour drive, we have the flat Chaco behind us and the Salta foothills in front of us – a starting point to the colorful Argentine hills.
