Valle de Los Altares, Trelew

4.6
#4 of 13 in Nature in Province of Chubut
Explore the huge picturesque red-yellow cliffsides and canyons at Valle de Los Altares. Giant rock formations make up the valley's topography, set within an arid region of Patagonia almost completely bare of vegetation. Look for numerous sites where Welsh colonizers once dwelled in the area. Consider taking an informative guided tour of the valley; you'll gain a better understanding of the land and its history, including the rock markings made here millennia ago by indigenous peoples. Pack plenty of water for your trip. Put Valle de Los Altares on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Trelew trip itinerary maker.

    The altars is a lonely place whose landscape is worth seeing. These plateaus. Indian arrows. Caves with ancient paintings. The river chubut, whose coast is green and trees cuts the desert dryness

    Beautiful scenery is that surrounds the area known as Los Altares, impressive rock formations of reddish is crossed by national route 25 which links the coast with the mountains of the province of Chubut. Stop forced in the commune of Los Altares to refuel and buy famous sandwiches of oil and butter with homemade bread (captive). This place is also ideal for adventure tourism lovers.
