Trekking in Cordoba: the perfect place to start
“Córdoba is a multifaceted province, because it has small mountain ranges, large mountain ranges, and we have the mountains of Pocho, very unknown, with a much more arid environment, closer to the Riojan landscape. We also have the Sierras del Norte, with landscapes closer to the Colorado Hill. There are different landscapes and all within reach,” says Matías Vivanco, of the program Hoy no sleepy en casa.
Given these advantages, you could tell us about the different places to practice. What are the most massive sites and what are the secrets?
There are some places that have become very massive and others that have remained in the gloom. Among the massives, the Champaquí is the highest point, so which is the biggest sporting challenge, is the roof of Córdoba. Another of the massive points is the Uritorco hill. Behind the Uritorco is located the Massif of the Giants. And Condorito’s Creek. Among the secret places, I would make special mention of the whole west and the north of Cordoba. Mainly to the volcanoes of Pocho. It’s a landscape. completely rough, with few tourist services, highly preserved on a natural level, completely unlike what you’re used to. The flora is very different, reigns the palm caranday, which is a native palm tree. Another very interesting place is the Chancani nature reserve, which lies just beyond the volcanoes. And the Salinas Grandes, northwest. It’s an extremely rough place, not for Any, very risky. However, in recent years the tourism, as there are many guides who have become professional and who have started to go on excursions.
What difficulties does sport offer? What are the risks?
As a any sport, depends on the level of challenge you set. Of equal way, the Cordoba scenario (mainly the Sierras Chicas and Grandes) has many risks. That’s why commonly We hear of people who are astray; for example. The sudden changes in temperature, the low clouds that generate fog, lack of trails marked with signage, are many of the risks that make this activity must be taken seriously. A suggestion to do it is hire trekking guides that provide security to the activity we carry out.
Who can do it?
Anyway, because, as we mentioned earlier, there are countless paths and challenges. Any key is to enjoy good health. You have to have a certain sensitivity to what natural. We have carried for three days 62 years old people who go to par ours.
What equipment do you need for a walk?
For initiation walks, the basics: sportswear, good footwear, the most recommended is a trekking boot. Healthy foods, fruits, bars cereal, cheeses, because they last over time. And the other more technical team are trekking poles, which give more balance and relieve the effort they make the legs, prevents one from twisting.
What is the pleasure of trekking?
One of the greatest pleasures is this of returning to nature.
