One of the most eye-catching sites in Caviahue is Salto del Agrio. Located in the surroundings of this beautiful city, its majesty summons curious visitors from all round the world.
|Leaving from Copahue, visitors must take Provincial Route 27 heading for Caviahue and get past the detour towards this city.|
The delightful cascade lies 10 kilometers away. The monkey-puzzle trees and the Agrio River give shape to a superb landscape all around. At the end of the gravel road, it is understood that vehicles should be parked.
|A giant waterfall drops into the void from approximately 60 meters of height and explodes into a small lagoon waiting below with its still waters, as if gush and pond had been joined together for years. |
A deafening sound takes hold of the scene and visitors are invaded by countless sensations: they may feel like screaming, crying, or running away to see what lies on the other side of the cascade.
The golden hues tinge absolute everything; therefore, many people get close to the water body to see the real color of the rocks lying on the shore.
|According to the Mapuches dwelling in this area, this waterfall has always been a place for worship and is guarded by a group of monkey-puzzle trees which, along with the Copahue Volcano, give color to this real postcard. |
An astonishing site to be visited and photographed.
There are several tours to Salto del Agrio starting in January. If you want to go on your own, the local Tourist Office will provide the necessary directions as well as a map.
