      DESCRIPTION

      El Paso de Agua Negra (Black Water Pass) is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.780 m above the sea level, located in the border between Argentina and Chile, linking the IV Region of Coquimbo (Chile) with the Province of San Juan (Argentina).

      The pass connects the towns of La Serena (in Chile) and San José de Jachal (in Argentina). The distance between these 2 cities is 381km. Most of them are on a gravel surface drivable with any kind of vehicle. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful views of the mountains spread out before you!

      On the Chilean side the road is called Ruta 41. On the Argentinian side is called Ruta Nacional 150. It’s a real challenging drive and a true test of your vehicle and your stamina because the road abounds in twists and turns with wheels sometimes hanging above the precipice.

      TIPS FOR TRAVEL

      • Given this pass’s altitude and some unpaved parts of the road, we recommend that a beginner should not drive through this pass.
      • Take into consideration that at this high altitude, the air is refined and with less oxygen than normal.
