I just did the circuit to the brickwork which is amazing. But I have to go back because there is so much more to explore.View original
Is really amazing and it worth the 4 hours walking to El Enladrillado to see the most astonishing view of Andes mountains.
spectacular view when you're on top. walk is not too difficult but still takes its toll on the way back ( around 25km).
Pablo Vial ValdésImpressive place. Marvelous landscapes, particular geological formations and a wide biodiversity. Excellent infrastructure and camping areas. There are different routes for the day and crossings that connect with the Radal Siete Tazas National Park. The famous brickwork, as lagoons, waterfalls, volcanoes and immense forests make whenever you visit it, you find surprises. Please do not make fires in the kitchen and be careful with the stoves. If is deep, return with all the trash and more. No trace.View original
Aaron RomanIs a place very beautiful, with a few landscapes unimaginable perfect for a post-shot. The best time to go visit him according to my opinion is in the fall can be seen more deciduous forest that are present in the reserveView original
