The Cerro Bella Vista (1710 m) lies 16 kilometers from Bariloche, between the Cerro Catedral and Cerro Goye. As the name implies (Beautiful View in English), the scenery from its summit is absolutely amazing.
The climb to Cerro Bella Vista is quite demanding. It is therefore mandatory that all participants have a good fitness level. Some previous alpine climbing experience is also necessary. Besides that, keep in mind that two-thirds of the route consists in dense forest. After that, we must walk on sandy and rocky high mountain terrain.
As for the itinerary of this one-day hiking tour, our trail begins at the Jakob Hut, also known as El Tambo. It is a mountain lodge at 1000 meters of altitude. Here, we will start an easy climb towards the crest of the Cerro Bella Vista. That trekking route crosses an ancient forest of Coihues and Cypresses trees. We'll soon arrive at an incredible panoramic point that give us the first views of the Nahuel Huapi Lake.
So we'll continue ascending and leaving the evergreen forest behind. Now it is replaced by the famous Lengas trees. As the way goes ahead the trees become bushes. At that altitude the height allows us to admire the Moreno Lake. Now we're entering in a high Andean terrain, where we can appreciate the real vastness of the Andes and its lakes.
After crossing the edge of the Cerro Bella Vista, which is about 40 minutes hiking by rocky terrain, we'll finally reach the summit. After having lunch, resting and taking pictures up there, we must descend following the same trail.
If you are in search of a less demanding trek, check out my half-day hike in the Challhuaco Valley. It is perfect for beginner climbers or people who are not accustomed to difficult climbs.
So please contact me for more information or if you want to make your reservation for next season! I will be waiting for your message.
