  • To the castles of Pincheira is accessed by a route of gravel spoiled. About 15 to 20km from the entrance to that route, you reach the venue - payment - the castles of Pincheira. In December of 2016 pay 100pesos per person. The place has barbecue, overlooking the castles and pool. In the moment in which went, though was summer, the pools not were running.

  • We camped a few days at the catillos of Pincheira Camping, it's beautiful to see that landscape at every time of the day. The climb to the castle is steep, and the descent feels much more, gave me a little bit of vertigo, but it is very nice, only to rise you can see huge cavities in which guadavan their riots these famous thieves Pincheiras. Is to the shore of the river Malargüe, a river very nice of water well cold (went in January) that has very nice flow. Is passed from the shore of the campsite towards them castles crossing a bridge very firm that crosses the river. The people of the place very nice and cool.
