  • It is a visit that do not encourage tourism businesses because the gravel road is not very good, but I went with my car slowly and it can be done. It is beautiful! For mi, is a place must to know.

  • Should be because times of entry and exit in terms of senses of circulation, get before 10 o'clock in the morning to cascade to then continue towards Cerro tronador and Ventisquero Negro. The road is gravel but can circulate without problems (I did it with a Mio Clio). The waterfall had great flow and the environment of the forest is beautiful. Accessed by Boardwalk seamlessly. Road to the glacier is reached to Pampa Linda and you can make a short hike to the Saltillo las Nalcas. Income: from 14 to 17 hs graduation: from 11 am to 13 pm double hand: 18 at 10 pm

  • Auto is reached by a gravel road, without difficulty, within the National Park of Mount Tronador. You walk 250 meters along a catwalk and has a beautiful view of the cascade, which impresses not by its size but by the large flow of water that carries. The surrounding forest is beautiful.
