The everlasting way
If one could create a survey to determine the ranking of the crossings most talked enjoyable, full, natural and scenically stunning, of the Argentian´s trekking surely this one belongs to the top 10.
Deep valleys filled with a high range of Nothofagus (family trees typical of Andean Patagonian forest), 6 lagoons of paradise, many summits that shook the indomitable spirit of the good old Otto Meiling, winding paths rising, stony undulations with entertaining descent. The image of adventure it self in the ideal scenery.
