Description

iOverlander cannot verify if wild camping is permitted at this location. It is your responsibility to verify local laws or obtain consent before staying the night.

Drive on a grave/dirt road for 3kms off of hwy55. When you get to the green gate it is/was unlocked. From there it's 300 mts to a stunning high altitude lake, a waterfall as a backdrop, and wild trout fishing! (Caught small to medium sized Rainbows). Plenty of open flat spaces to camp/boondock. There is another lake above the waterfall called Tambor. Very quiet, no one around. Seems like the place was a failed tourism venture given the two empty houses.

Latest Check-Ins

Fantastic place! It is bloody cold!! You are a long ways up.
Met a bunch of locals coming and going from this place. If you meet one, ask them to tell you the legend of the "Castle made of gold".
Saw lots of fish jumping, never caught one personally.
Tried to hike to the lake above the falls. One hour in and we turned back (likely half way).
Buy some wood in one of the villages, you'll want it.

Report Check-In

Place with several possibilities to camp. the view over the laguna to the waterfalls is awesome. Bring some wood and you can make up a fire. It’s pretty cool on this altitude.

This place is perfect for Overlanders, the view is awsome. Really quiet. You can go swimming or fishing in the Laguna.
