  • The truth is of the best places I saw in my life. Be up the mountain is a crazy experience, spend the day there, completely disconnected from the world and connected with the place. Walking are approximately 4 hours there are many ups and downs, so we did that horse because body gives us not to do so. Ride did it with enterprise grade 42, and us went including spend the night at the shelter about $2400 more or less each. It is expensive, but certainly worth a go to place and above all spend the night back up. You see all the stars at night since there is little light pollution to that height. The refuge of the drawer is quite expensive and a semi chaos by people who stays there to go to the bathroom always rank, charge you for bathing, cooking, and charging the cell phone (if you want). You should carry food and cookies. You will not the cell phone, signal, or need to use it rather than just take pictures. It is an incredible connection with nature. I recommend highly to do the trail until the birth of the River, are about 40 min of walking, super accessible and the place is really beautiful. DON'T LET'S DO IT. IT IS MAGICAL.

  • Once you arrive in el Bolson you got that take the bus that leaves you in Warton(igualmente tenes toda la información ael llegar) then you have to walk 10 km along a path that at times is difficult. But when you reach the drawer you realize it was worth all the effort you made. It is a paradise. Unforgettable!

  • A bit difficult to reach, but worth it. I recommend at least one night in one of the shelters.
