  • 2023-Mar-18 to 2023-Mar-19 / 2 days / Hiking / SOBO / RR / Martin & Helena

A little more than we expected, there are some nice spots on the way, like Laguna Las Torres.

  • 2022 19 Nov Frank 2.5 days SOBO

I got the bus from Villa Amengual to La Tapera then walked back, camped 1 night along the way. Few opportunities for camping as you approach the Carratera Austral as the land is fenced off. Villa Amengual, which is 2KM off route on the Carratera Austral is a good base. On the third day I continued along the Carratera Austral to the junction with the X421 dirt road going to El Gato, a better place to break the journey as there is nothing at the end of stage 29. At the X421 junction there is a bus stop (very few buses) & I hitched from there to Villa Manihuales.
