  • One of the steps with greater empowerment for the year. Safe, beautiful, with places where stopping and taking pictures, rest and admire the mountain landscape.

  • Eye if it is in winter, there are areas where you have to use chains on your vehicle. Take your time going from one country to another. The Chilean side there are wonderful landscapes, like Europe. Until you reach currarrehue where you have several thermal complexes (care prices). There you got several meals over the road jobs, delicious and good price

  • I have crossed from Chile to Argentina and vice versa several times by this step. It always catches my attention the beautiful landscapes that are seen on the route. The only way is about 12 km from Earth (gravel) before the Argentinean Customs (coming from ARG), however, it is not in bad condition. Lower, no problem were crossing all types of vehicles, from 4 x 4 to cars. Cross is fast, just becomes a bit slow in the Chilean Customs, inspection of the SAG, especially if you are with a bus or group of persons, since suitcases must pass by scanner and there is a bottle neck. In none of the Customs I've seen that they sell food, so they should be. Bathrooms are in both. I crossed in February and later 1 hour approx total (both customs).

  • The place is beautiful! If you have the time to cross here, recommend it completely, the view of the mountains, the forest of Araucaria, volcano, priceless landscape. The crossroads in our case (February), was also very fast and pleasant, neither comparison with the crossroads of Osorno.

  • Very good pass between Argentina and Chile to join Junín de los Andes with Pucón. Almost the entire route paved less about 15 km from Argentine side, apparently for being a national park. I think that with asphalt of would most enjoy. In the last week of February, the delay at each Customs Office was tiny: just half an hour each. I hope stays as well. Highly recommended.

  • Very friendly staff, with simple facilities and a few kilometers from Junin's andes as well as Pucón. While the greater part of the journey on the Argentine side is paved, there are still about 15 km of gravel. While the Chilean side, the entirety of the route is paved and in good condition.

  • Cute environment until the Chilean Customs but passed much changes the status of the road. The procedure is fast and they serve properly, may lack warmth but is a detail.

  • A privileged landscape surrounds it and I loved the speed, is not very busy and we were to ida in 15 minutes already. Around the corner had a quota, so it took us a little more, but half an hour as much. Last year I crossed by another step and it was eternal, almost 4 hours. Now I will always cross over here. If you have all the paperwork in order and in hand (death to those who are looking for them in the window, what happens?), you do very fast, even if checked you luggage.
