Description

Room for 3 or 4 tents and a few bikes or possibly two trucks. Rough road access 4x4 required. The guy manning the outpost cooked us a meal for 10k and charged us 10k each to camp. Unbelievable views! Worth a look even if not staying the night. There is a tap that has water that is good to drink at the corner of the building. (needs pliers to turn on). If you ask nicely he will let you use his toilet.

Latest Check-Ins

We made it barely up here in our Landrover Discovery, but you definitely need 4x4, high clearance and low gear! Maybe its because of the rainy season but the road is damn rough at the moment.
The host and his pets Berta the dog and Messi the cat are so lovely, we gave him 40k as he asked for. Facilities were clean and ok.

Great spot. Cold at night with awsome views. 4wd and high clearance recommended. You'll now be charged for the campsite from the hostel. He wanted to have 20 per person per night. We paid 30k for 2 persons and a camper. Definitely too much in my opinion for what you get. No facilities at the camping area but nearby at the hostel. Fun drive up the mountain.

The drive up here is fun but you definitely need a 4wd, the views are incredible, we drove all the way up to the military base, there are some great view points on the way. We camped here afterwards for 25mil cop, nice spot with lots of wood for a fire. You can use the toilet and shower in the guards house plus he will happily make you meals for a fee as well. The sunsets up here are incredible, very cold at night, a nice break from the heat of the coast!

We took Moto taxis up and back from Minca very early in the morning. Two hours to get up and rewarded with spectacular views of the snowcapped peaks.

There is (not so level) space for many tents and cars. Firewood around. Little infrastructure but excellent for nature lovers. Above San Lorenzo the road gets much worse, high clerance 4x4 only. You can drive all the way up to Kennedy peak (there are some level spots on the way where one might camp (for free ?) as well.

Took a Moto taxi up here for 45 k to camp for the night. 2 hour ride up the most ridiculously muddy and rutted road we've seen in 6 months of S America. Sunrise was unreal from this viewpoint overlooking the Sierra. Man tried to get 20 k pp for tenting. Offered habitacion for 50k pp. we left him 10k pp in the morning. A nice 5 hour downhill trek. Would try and hire a mtn bike to ride down next time.

The place is a bit shabby but excellent views. The San Lorenzo would make a better camp, or possibly where I camped (further on is a small clearing with a lookout where you can squeeze in a two man tent!). The road up here is pretty awful in parts.
