  • It good of the hill that you can upload with auto, camioneta(lo ideal) or foot and bicycle (less preferred that are ones few kms of gravel and steep) when arrive to the top have a beautiful view of the bolson, Lake puelo, also you can pull you with paragliding. all this is for free access (except paragliding $2000 aprox)

  • Interesting to go to this hill and take advantage because there is also the carved woods, very cute. After the carved forest you have to climb 30 minutes more to the top of the Piltriquitrón, it is worth. The road is not very good, but for hikers this has no problem

  • Really worth a visit it. Landscapes or approach to what you see in the photos. Climb 1500 meters to the refuge, camping and making Summit was very good experience to start. I hope come back and in better physical shape to enjoy more the road. Share a community bonfire and some mates to fight the cold. There sleeping in a tent. Recommended!
