  • We went with the family in a combi that cost $150 to raise and lower. By the type of road, it is not recommended to go with auto as the climb is very steep. The combi leaves you on the platform where starts the way up. The walk is short, 45 minutes approximately until the carved forest and from there 15 minutes to the refuge. The intensity is low to moderate only by descent, but it is neither impossible nor much less. The refuge is in a plain and is very well placed. You have supply, bathroom, to sleep, but above all a beautiful view. Hence, my recommendation is night, rest and, the other day, to top of the Hill. It is a very cool experience, in a rather moderate walk. Actually, is an experience that is super easy for the family. -Sleep in this refuge is excellent for a first experience of children and adolescents.

  • Before anything the road until the base is destroyed! not I recommend it to anyone, terrible wells with saw and soft stones, I tell them that I went with a duster, if you got a medium auto low or you can think of. Once at the base you have about 50 minutes to the carved wood, we already knew it and it is not great thing therefore on way to the shelter, will be about 20 minutes more, is of average difficulty but it is worthwhile, since, from the hut you have a wonderful view.

  • We went on the recommendation. The truth is that almost hit the back. To do with auto, it is very hard for the poor car. Then the hike is demanding but can be reached in 50 minutes more or less. Upstairs is u.s. Beautiful view

  • This Hill so cute that we admire from El Bolsón is part of the most beautiful mountains of the region! Don't miss the opportunity to reach its peak, depending on the conditions weather is possible to climb it at any time of the year, it will always be unique, in summer for its panoramic among which you can see mountains such as mount Tronador or volcano Osorno's Chile, in the autumn because of the reddish color of its languages, in winter is a perfect place for ski touring amongst other activities like climbing in ice or snowshoe trekking. A bonus: the carved forest! An open-air museum where artworks, are carved in wood, a unique place.

  • A panoramic view across the city from el Bolsón. The base to top, is a spectacular place to sunbathe. The difficulty of the trail is not so high but must be stopping from time to time. Highly recommended.
