The second day we spent at Villa Pehuenia we went to see the Batea Mahuida volcano. During the first part of the drive we made the ascent to the summit and the antennas hostel (the view was so beautiful it's hard to describe, you can see the Lanin and Chilean volcanoes alongside the Villarica). From the volcano's crater you'll have an amazing panoramic view. Finally, we went down not by the traditional side but by the crater lake. Note that the land where the volcano belongs to the Mapuche Puel and these are responsible for the confectionery's below.
I've been twice to this small town and I've come to the conclusion that on these trips I've found my second place in the world, the first place is my town where I grew up and live. But I'm longing to return, and I'm dreaming about one day building myself a second home, where I could grow old and go fly fishing. I've never flyfished, but I fished in small lakes, but I want to travel to fly fish, although this is a useless technique. The place is impossible to describe. It gives me a special strength, although it's not listed as the most beautiful place or the most touristic area, for me Junin de los Andes is special. The river Chimehuin borders this beautiful city which is on a small island. There are 2 camp sites although I recommend only 1, Laura Vicuña Camping. It is the best site I have ever visited, very safe, very affordable and also has wooden cabins to rent at very low prices. If you pass by, visitthe city, the Via Crucis on a hill, with Mapuches style sculptures, however I can't remember the name. I hope my words help some hesitant visitors to visit Junin de los Andes.
I made the trip to San Martin de los Andes, in the south of the Hermosa in Argentina, in February 2011. It is a small but charming city, with a wonderfully peaceful landscape. On the shore of Lake Lacar, is a vast sheet of water that never ends, its coasts are more beautiful than any others and you can always find new things. Its main attraction is prthe Lanin Volcano, powerful and majestic. It can be seen from various angles and all views are amazing. When you travel around the routes and paths of San Martin, you will see wonderful lakes and rivers that make you appreciate the wonder of nature. Enjoy my photos.
