One piece of The Andes, at the foot of Tronador Mount in Nahuel Huapi National park, gives us a stunning landscape and many special sensations. And Pampa Linda, an oasis designed by the hand of nature. From there we will start hiking in order to reach to the Chilean police post at the end of the first day.
After that, we start a long descent among the valleys of Chile, crossing forests and thermal places, until we reach to the town of Ralun. The natural spectacle and the experience tends to be stored in the memory sector of “the unforgettable”.
Please note that this trek can only be done during the months of November, December, January, February and March.
