Zay Harding takes the road trip of a lifetime on one of the longest and most spectacular highways in the world. Argentina's Ruta 40, encapsulates the spirit of the country, often called La Mitica Ruta 40 or The Mythical Route 40. Running the entire length of the country, from the border with Bolivia to the Southern tip of Patagonia, and along the edge of the Andes mountains, Route 40 is a challenge for even the most experienced driver. Across the Andes and the giant white Salt Flats of the Salinas Grandes to the Humahuaca Valley, of 7 Colours Hill, Zay Harding travels to Tilcara, the oldest city in the country. He explores the pre Columbian ruins of the Pucara, before heading to the capitol, Salta, and the Museum of High Altitude Archeology, to see the best preserved mummies in the world. With the most spectacular scenery in the country, Zay treks to the prehistoric parks of Talampaya and Ischigualasto, with some of the world's best preserved fossils, and then on to Valley of the Moon; it's like being on another planet. Zay then joins thrill seekers deep inside the Andes at the windy National Park of Leoncito. In the mountains at the Astronomical Observatory, CASLEO, he stargazes at night. Finally, Zay visits the winemakers of Mendoza Province, and lands beneath the tallest mountain in the Western and Southern Hemisphere's, Aconcagua.
Along the way: Learn about the dark history of San Carlos de Bariloche, where a notorious war criminal was discovered living. Witness the Patagonian hideout of Butch Cassidy at Cholila, and explore the very hut where he lived for five years with the Sundance Kid. Meet the Lulliallco Children from 500 years ago that seem alive in the cryogenic display at the Museum of High Altitude Archaeology.
