Whenever we get to a tourist destination, it is usual for us to walk around for walking is one of the means that let us reach those sites we wish to see. In turn, it is a fantastic exercise we seldom practice.
Once at Villa La Angostura, we resolved to reach Belvedere Viewpoint and Inacayal Cascade, both located in the Mapuche territory. On the arranged day, right after breakfast, we packed a bottle of water, sodas and some cereal bars and set off.
We parked the car and were amazed at the thick forest in front of us. It was amazingly tall and mixed.
Level of Difficulty: Intermediate, due to the steep slopes.
