Full description
Arrive in the pretty district of Potrerillos and settle in before the activity begins. Then, start trekking with your guide to the summit of Cerro Calavera, 2212 meters above sea level. Famous for its accessibility for hikers and bikers, Mount Calavera boasts beautiful vegetation, awesome lake views, and plenty of animal sightings. During the hike, listen to fascinating anecdotes and history from your passionate guide, including the history of the area, the flora and fauna of the region, some information on the mountain, and typical regional customs. After an approximately 3-hour ascent, reach the top of the stunning Calavera Mountain. Take some time to rest and enjoy water and fruits to recharge. From the top, marvel at spectacular vistas over the region, the Cordón del Plata mountain range, and Lake Calavera. Finally, begin the descent, lasting up to 2 hours.

Fun place with lots to do

O passeio foi transferido de dia, pois nao havia grupo. Ao chegar no local, o vento nao permitiu o passeio e nos empurraram outras atividades. Uma tirolesa pequena, um trekking de menos de 30 min. Havia rapel, que nao tinhamos interesse ( que durou 30 min) e um rafting, que embora havia roupas para nao se molhar emprestadas pela empresa, nao havia saoatos e como nao iamos fazer esta atividades nao tinhamos extras. Entre cada atividade, ficamos esperando mais de 2 horas. Foi decepicionante

La verdad es que no recomiendo esta actividad Comenzó muy mal y termino de la peor manera No tuve comunicacion previa Nos buscaron por el hotel antes de lo previsto Llegamos al lugar de la actividad y no nos tenían registrado, mucho menos una caminata de cinco horas como estaba pactada. Estuvimos hasta las 13 hs esperando hasta que resolvieron hacer una caminata de una hora. Eso fue todo, ni hablar del almuerzo un servicio que deja mucho que desear. En definitiva regresamos al hotel cerca de las 18,30 hs todo el día afuera para solo una hora de actividad. Un robo
