Paso_Garibaldi

Paso_Garibaldi
Paso Garibaldi, located on Tierra del Fuego, is the only paved route across the Fuegian Andes (the image shows the old road). It’s also the highest point on Argentina’s Ruta Nacional 3. The views from the summit are stunning, the massive Lago Fagnano stretches 98 km west in the background, across the Magallanes-Fagnano Fault and into Chile, and the often-missed Lago Escondido reveals its picture-perfect location surrounded by mountains.

Heading south, the road snakes its way through the Fuegian Andes for the final 60km into Ushuaia before descending to the Beagle Channel.

The pass was built in 1956 to connect the island’s two major cities: Rio Grande and Ushuaia and it comes with a touch of interesting history. Three days after the route opened, a USA-licensed Jeep became just the third vehicle to successfully drive between the two cities, completing what at the time was the first successful Alaska-Ushuaia road trip.

Dann hast du ja einen Grund um nochmal dahin zu reisen ;-) Die alte Straße wäre natürlich schöner gewesen, war aber oben mit groben Steinen fast unpassierbar gemacht,
