Mesmerizing paintings remain the biggest highlight of Walichu Caves, where early indigenous peoples left messages for later generations. The paintings vary between red, black, white, yellow, and ocher hues and depict ancient tribes and their way of life. Many different methods were used to create these images, including finger dragging, finger pressure, and the use of tufts of hair and hollow bones. After observing the paintings, enjoy the surrounding scenery. Make Walichu Caves part of your personalized El Calafate itinerary using our El Calafate tour planner.
