  • La Trochita travel is very interesting and the most beautiful. Station Nahuel Pan is where one falls, there is almost nothing. There are people selling things, but none sells something related to the mapuche culture, they sell things that you can buy anywhere. During the trip, the guides are telling the story of la Trochita. The trip takes an hour to get to Nahuel Pan and time to return.

  • Very nice experience, to travel on a train to steam, as return time, to experience the same than those who used it daily in his time, very nice truth. Also does a tour must to Nahuel Pan station and when he arrives, they let you go up to the machine to look at her and you can take pictures in the same. If you go to Esquel, it is the forced ride.

  • It's like take you back to the past! A narrow gauge train very whose locomotives date from the year 1922. It remains one of the special attractions of all those who visit Esquel and Trevelin ever. Missed the walk and work more earnestly for the maintenance of the trochita.

  • Historical transport which must be visited, although it may not seem it is well maintained and guide women that we had was very nice with us giving us conversation during the trip, teaching us and answered all of our questions and doubts whether on the landscape or cultural topics of the moment, such is the case about what happened to Santiago Maldonado Miss respected all kinds of opinions concerning creating a pleasant discussion.

  • A classic in Esquel! Forced walk to learn this steam train that connected the villages of the South. Walk lasts 3 hours in total (1 hour of ida, 1 pm at Nahuel Pan and 1 hour back) during the tour guide tells us a little about the history and arriving at the station, there is a very cute craft fair. If they go to Esquel must know it!
