  • A magical place, very nice trail and blue water, an incredible tranquility. You can go back and forth or is also the option of staying in nearby shelters, since blue drawer was closed

  • Spectacular place, didn't see anything more beautiful in el bolson, is obviously not for everyone, to get you got a trekking of 3 to 4 hours of ida and as much back. The difficulty is medium, but when you arrive and see the color of this boxed River, with its trout swimming in front of you, you forget about all the sacrifice you made up. I recommend to leave the car at the warton chacra, the parking is at will, and they tend it well. In addition when you arrive there is a restaurant and you can you a rich beer. Safety pin!

  • A beautiful trek with views of the aqua blue waters of Rio Azul. The primary trail guides ou along the azul river beginning from confluencia to where the river is fed by waterfalls and glacier run-off deep in the forested mountain canyon. The trail itseld is well-signed and groomed. You can go for a day hike (be sure to make it past the first 3 refugios to reach Mirador Azul for impressive views looking down upon the river and it's rapidsvas it carves through the Canyon). The trails have great refugios at well-placed distances making it easy to turn this into a multi-day exploration.
  • Really beautiful place. It's a hard trekking, so be prepared
  • It seems incredible, but it is very nice. You have to be very prepared for walking, are between 3 and 4 hours of ida and many others back. I came is March, was right but it's a pretty big effort, it is not for everyone sincerely. The place is cute, but the end of the road is quite "adventure"

  • Paradise! Certainly worth a go. The river is surrounded by a breathtaking forest where you can see some specimens of animals and birds in the area. After crossing a narrow walkway becomes a path which begins bordering the river. The crystal clear water and beautiful landscape invite you to stop the March and contemplate the magnificence of this natural paradise.
