  • I met brava lagoon along with the crater Crown of the inca. More than 4000 msnm is a paradise in the mountains with water full of flamingos, ducks, and vicuñas that prowl the place between beautiful snow capped volcanoes! It is a nature reserve, just to care for the wildlife. The colors of the surroundings mountains are spectacular, and the cold air is a caress for the five senses! Safety pin!

  • We went to Laguna Brava with a hired Guide. There were two vehicles and we had a cell phone with which the Guide, who was in the other vehicle was commenting on us trip. We learned from the history of the place and of the past in this area. Made a stopover in high Jague comerr empanadas and breads filled with excellent and then during the ascent we were stopping to take pictures, see geological formations or geological faults as well as the wildlife that we could see. The stop in the rock one of the many reffugios built by Sarmiento was very good. The views of the cordillerra with its colors unpayable and finally after the Protezuelo reach the lagoon surrounded by volcanoes with their changing colors and their Flamingos was really beautiful. The trip is super recommended and the complete excursion takes about 10 hours (are 400kms total).

  • I love this place with 402 acres, see flamingos and the tones of the water. the surrounding landscape and silence. The water is salty, and a reservation. Dream place. Visit it with my pet. When downloaded from the crater of the inca ♥♥♥
