Pozo de las Animas, Malargue

4.0
#6 of 16 in Things to do in Malargue
Find yourself peering into the the deep blue "eyes" of the natural phenomenon of Pozo de las Animas. Twin sinkholes sitting side by side create the illusion of sunken eyes in the earth. Caused by collapsed underground voids, the site is the result of the dissolution of gypsum deposits. A small, light-blue lake of mirrored fresh water gathers at the base of each of the sinkholes, which are both a deep blue-green color from the mineral composition. The sinkholes are located just off the highway, so you can stop to snap a quick photo and take in the surrounding mountain scenery. By using our Malargue day trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Pozo de las Animas and other attractions in Malargue.

  • It is an amazing place and very crazy. It is worth going to see it if you are going to las Leñas. The route is very bad but they are fixing it

  • It is a very large well than when you approach you makes you want to get away. It gave me a bit of fear that everything will crash since this is how I am.

  • Beautiful landscape environment. It entertains just listen to the conjecture of the visitors about its origin... It is rather amazing, that also contains stories and legends... It is not for less.
