  • The beautiful waterfall has to be visited along with the Cerro Tronador and Black Ventisqueiro. A lot of people are confused on the way, so here's a summary of the script: just take the Ruta 40 and turn right on wooden plaque indicating Los Alerces and Cerro Tronador. Take route 82, and a few kms after will come to the entrance of the Nahuel Huapi National Park and the bifurcation in which the tourist will have to choose between continuing on the road that leads up the Hill and the Ventisquero or take the Route 81 and visit the Cascada Los Alerces. The two routes are narrow, one-way and predefined schedules have to access. The Cascada Los Alerces is about 30 miles from the park entrance and the road gets released, double-parked, from 9:00. The back is released as 11:00 in the morning and, after passing the bridge over the river Tame, have to turn left to take the 82 Route and will be more 40 km to Cerro Tronador. Tour not to be missed!

  • PIN after visiting the tronador Hill before gluing the back must know this wonder.

  • This is a trip and a landscape you'll never forget. Located 50km south of Bariloche. You DO NOT NEED to buy a tour, just to have a car to get there and pay the National Park fee right at the beginning...  more »
