Along the way, we’ll make several stops in beautiful places such as a viewpoint over a glacial valley, the Yeso Reservoir, the Lagoon of the Ducks, the Yeso Waterfall and the Plomo natural hot springs, where you will be able to take pictures, enjoy the areas, learn about the geomorphology of the valleys and the flora, take advantage of amazing local produce, go on a 2-hour trek into the mountains, and – if you’re lucky – spot native fauna such as condors, eagles, chinchillas, culpeo foxes, and more!
