Due to its renowned hiking, 4x4 off-roading, rock climbing and rappelling, Los Gigantes, in the Pampa de Achala region of the Cordoba Mountains, has become one of the city's most visited adventure sites. Topping out at a height of 2,374 meters (7,789 ft), the multiple peaks that compose Los Gigantes, including Cerro La Cruz and El Hornito summit, give hikers and climbers an amazing view over the striking valleys and waterways that make up western Cordoba Province. Aside from panoramic vistas and adventurous activities, however, these peaks come complete with multiple unique cave formations that are well worth a look, and an array of wildlife that includes spotted lizards, condors and even pumas. Just be sure to check the weather before heading out, as heavy fogs and inclement conditions have been known to quickly come a'rolling in.
