    A waterfall that comes from inside the mountain is what we find at the end of the road, but until you get to that place the guide tells you in detail each of the geological aspects that occurred in this place. It's like watching the Earth millions of years ago there exposed. It is a very beautiful experience pra to family, to appreciate by adults and children in all its glory.

    Malargüe is a business, nothing you can or go without a guide and the costs are not economic. We went to the entrance of Maqui Malal, forbidden to pass! There were 3 different vehicles that we came to visit and we had to go. A pity! All ASI, La Payunia, Cave of the witches. The only thing free is the way to Las Leñas and El Sosneado.
