Salta is located at the feet of two hills: 20 de Febrero and San Bernardo. It is characterized by an architectural style that is markedly Spanish, with single story houses and wide sidewalks.

Sites include the City Hall, Cathedral, San Francisco Church, San Bernardo Convent, San Bernardo Hill, National University, Vaqueros River, Castellanos Valley, Lesser, San Lorenzo, and the handicraft market.

Overnight in Salta.

Transfer from Salta to Las Lajitas in 4x4 vehicles. Today, you will visit El Rey National Park, 203 km away from the city in the department of Anta. The 44,162 hectare park was created in 1948 to preserve the cloud forests and the transitional regions between those and the so-called chaco serrano.

Among the mammals living in the park are pumas, peccaries (the heaviest mammal in South America), tapirs, brockets, monkeys, coatis, tayras, anteaters, deer, foxes, ocelots, and jaguars; and as for birds, there are cariamas, parrots, hummingbirds, and plenty of other very colorful ones, like the dusty-legged guan.

The brown-throated sloth used to live in this park, but it is now extinct in Argentina.

It was created in 1979 for the purpose of protecting the cloud forests and the birthplaces of mountain streams that farther down become an important catchment basin and that supply water to nearby farmlands and cities. At 760,320 hectares, it is the largest national park in the Argentine Northwest.

Of the national parks that protect cloud forests, only Calilegua has a piedmont, a transitional terrain between dry forests and cloud forests, and this is found on the edges of the park between 550 and 700 meters of elevation.

Animals that live in the park are the jaguars (locally called tigers), pumas (named lions by the locals), deer, tapir, peccaries, coatis, brockets, foxes, raccoons, river otters, capybaras, tayras, wildcats, and agoutis.
