Pozo de las Animas, Malargue
(4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. For Pozo de las Animas and beyond, use our Malargue trip generator to get the most from your Malargue vacation.

  • The place is impressive, but does not have neither an Observatory and lots of data so that tourists can be well received.

  • They are underway to Las Lenas and are very close to the route. It is a place that you should take a few minutes to admire, since unfortunately there is no infrastructure to explore these wells formed by nature, of approximately 80 meters in height, and with only 10 or 15 minutes reach to see everything you can. Amazing and impressive training who we can not admire is in its full magnitude product that for safety are barbed wire so that people can not approach the edge. I think that it could make some footbridges or viewpoints and collect an entry at a minimum cost in order to be able to enjoy in all its splendour of these wonders of nature. In the absence of this left me with the feeling that with a little good will much more of this walk can enjoy.

  • I went back to see eight-year-old then this beautiful work of nature, and to compare photos of the two visits actually it seems to be happening which commented me that with the passage of time is to be only one.
