  • Without doubt, a place imposing and beautiful to visit, full of history that not you can let of know it.

  • Cerro Tronador is really impressive. You reach the foot of the glaciers, especially when visiting the Ventisquero Negro. Once in a while you can hear the fall of some piece of ice. They tend to see condors in the area and it is ideal for making various treks of one to several days: saltillo las Nalcas, Refugio Meiling, Laguna Ilon, passage of the clouds, even crossing into Chile.
