  • You can go to the cerro Otto bus without the need of hiring tour. The ascent to mount is through a cable car and arriving the revolving confectionery. It is a bit expensive, but it is worthwhile to appreciate the beauty of the landscape from the height.

  • Beautiful experience. The Lugano quite expensive. drink in the revolving confectionery is required, the price of that same coffee anywhere. It is a nice excursion

  • This is the location for the cable car up to Confitería Giratoria Cerro Otto. Bus 51 will drop you across the street on Pioneros. It's near KM5 on Bustillo but will require about a mile hike towards Pioneros. Unless you're hiking or biking to the top of Cerro Otto, it's pretty much the only way up. We showed up a half hour before the published closing time and they told us they were closed. The next day when we went to the top the listed last decent time was two hours after the published closing time. I'm not sure why "they were closed" but it is probably a "local thing". Just be aware if you're a tourist that you should get there first thing in the morning or at least a couple hours before closing. The view from the cable car on the way is amazing and worth the ride. I assume to "balance" the system they make you wait and let a lot of empty cable cars go by. Wait was only about 10 minutes but curious since I haven't seen that done before on other cable cars.
  • Kind of expensive but worth the investment. Try to arrive early because queues are very long and you will need to wait ages to enter the restaurant on top. Lots of kids.
  • Somewhere spectacular, impossible not to go if you're going to bariloche. Not to be missed.
