Before crossing the bridge over the Manso River towards Mount Tronador, take the road on the left and follow a picturesque path to the beautiful cascade.
Everyone knows that Nahuel Huapi National Park features countless sceneries and enchanting natural nooks. Of course Los Alerces Cascade is one of those attractions visitors should not miss.
There we went. The gravel road crossed thick cypress and coihue woodlands, typical of the mountain range area. We were amazed at the spectacular panoramic sights emerging behind every slope and every bend.
The road was too narrow to take pictures, so we chose to put our cameras away. The Manso River ran quietly to our right. Little by little, the river became more violent and farther ahead it gave origin to some rapids which could be observed from many trails that reached the shore.
Level of Difficulty: low.
Recommendations: Leaving from Bariloche heading for the South towards Lake Mascardi along Route 258, about 35 km are traveled along a paved road up to a rubble path that forks when it reaches the Manso River rapids: one of the branches goes to Lake Roca and Los Alerces Cascade and the other leads to Mount Tronador.
