    Make the walk in the Trochita is like have a journey in time and return to the era of the Welsh settlement in Patagonia. It is an experience that can be repeated since according to season that you make it is a different show... In winter the train for the snowy mountains and spring/summer is filled with green... I cannot do so whenever I go back to Esquel

    The trochita has a particular charm not only by the tour but by the same machinery, which is the object of admiration of numerous foreign, especially European tourists who come to know and admire.
