  • We decided to travel the route 25 from Trelew to Esquel for the comments. The truth is that the first half of the road is quite damaged or repaired, but it was worth the effort to discover these amazing landscapes. It has a particularity, suddenly you find in a Valley surrounded by monochromatic stratified rock formations. When trasponés a Hill you stick in another Valley where this setting disappears and you find with other multicolored formations, then pass to another Valley and begin to appear the green... Do you dare to experience it?

  • Majestic rock formations created by effects of the wind, can be seen with imagination forms, as the example of which resembles the prow of a boat. Beautiful scenery of a route 25's on its very attractive to traverse. It is in repair, some short sections are gravel for this reason.

  • We saw it from the road, we not stopped. Beautiful scenery, to take a photo and follow. The route is some rubble, and parts of the asphalt is not in good condition.
