Paso de Jama is paved
i´m sorry bikepilot - Pasa de Jama is definitely paved all the way from San Pedro de Atacama until Salta......
Just did it a month ago....
BTW. The higest elevation you´ll get on that pass will be around 4.815 m ;-) .... paved.....
There are two kinds of travelers. Some will sacrifice everything for the destination, and some will sacrifice everything, including the destination, to enjoy the journey.
