Mirador de los Condores, Merlo

4.4
#2 of 6 in Tours in Merlo
From the top of Mirador de los Condores visitors are treated to views of the sprawling city below and the surrounding landscape. Hike this 1 km (.62 mil) trail, which begins at the visitor center in El Chalten and takes you to the lookout point. Sample a baked good from the bakery perched on top while you soak up the view. At a height of 2,200 m (7,217 ft), this panoramic lookout towers above the peaks around you. If you have a car, driving up is fairly easy, but walking is by far the more scenic option.

    Unable go to Merlo, San Luis and not go and spend the day here, not to be missed does not lack that you pay so much for an excursion, you got the collective that spends every hour by Av, of the Sun, and drops you off right at the entrance of the viewpoint, if you go in the morning, much better, take advantage of the day completely, walk a few meters far this the Ranger that you explained in the center of the place , on it, on some animals of the place, and you see the descent of the condor to tumar lunch, then you have to follow and go down to the River, down to it, there are back just from food stalls, but if you want somewhere quiet and cute and more relaxation, followed the path that leaves behind the parking lot that is behind the place where this the guardapaarques they will be 500 m, impossible to miss is the only road that goes up to your left, after the 2nd curve, a bajadita, and there there is already got the River with their mini casacaditas, eye can follow the dirt road going up, I nine years I went to Merlo, never follow, I can not assure you as it is, if I followed subuendo but by the river , between stones, on both sides there is a path made by the same people that go, and but you are climbing the stones, it is not dangerous, as more subis more beautiful are the cascaditas, that, if you eat, take something or smoke, pulls everything in a bag, so that on your return you strips in baskets for rubbish, do not throw anything to the river or escndas among the stones not contamines nature

    It is essential to separate the opinion into three parts: on the one hand the road up to the lookout point and the view from it if the day is clear is the most beautiful of Merlo. The sunsets also are very nice. The adventure activities last about an hour and a half and can be carried out practically all over the world. I was with my children and my nieces ages 16 to 8 years and everyone enjoyed them very much. The view from the second bridge is sublime... without words. The attention of the boys is very good and they are very attentive and helpful. Now... the point against: the confectionery is very basic with regular care. It is the only thing not according to a nice place. Although it is the fourth time that we are going and really has improved is still far from being good.
