Hike to the Cascada de los Césares


Take a short uphill hike to the Cascada de los Césares, a waterfall on a stream that flows into Lake Mascardi from a much smaller lake nestled in a fold about a thousand feet higher. The trail cuts through dense stands of bamboo-like trees on its way up the mountainside. Magnificent coihue trees provide shade from the sun. Without notice find yourself on the edge of a cliff, face-to-face with 230 feet of cascading snowmelt.
