River crossing with a Volskwagen Gol (Argentina)
Fording a river on Route 40 on the way to Abra El Acay (Acay Pass, 4,895 m / 16,059 ft).
I had to cross this small river 6 or 7 times.
Despite all the warning signs and local people telling me that it was a very difficult road, I had no problem at all with my Volkswagen Gol rental.
You can attempt to cross this pass with a pasenger car only if the weather is very dry (no rain in the past several days) and if there is no chance of storm. If you get stuck or break down, it might take days to get you (and the car) back to civilization! So be prepared for the worst case.
