Trekking On Colorado Volcano In San Martin De Los Andes

Highlights of Trekking On Colorado Volcano

It is one of the most recommended trekking, not only because of its beautiful journey, but also because it is within the reach of all those who propose it. The ascent will take us around 3 hours and a couple for the return to the base. To this time we can add the stops for photos, hydration and the full enjoyment that will give us a unique summit.

This hill is very close to San Martín de los Andes District and its summit may be seen from many places such as Catritre, the 7-Lake Route, Quilaquina, Trompul, Lake Lolog and others.  

 

We will start picking up each passenger by their hotels to reach the mountain base. This transfer will take us around 40 minutes. 

Once we start walking, we will cross the pampas that will bring us to the same base. Bordering a stream, we will enter a gigantic lenga forest with trees that reach 30 meters high and Colihues reeds and we will go deeper and deeper into a canyon that proposes a not very demanding but constant ascent.

As we gain height the vegetation becomes more and more stunted and will allow us to have a better view of the whole Lacar Basin, until it turns into scrub.

We will cross a large number of natural rocky viewpoints and arrive at the pre-summit, where we will begin to see a ground that will be increasingly reddish until we reach the edge. The texture of each rock will be very similar to pumice and this is because we will be arriving at the sector of the old volcanic cone that with its different eruptions, bathes of solidified lava all the summit.

The summit is the epicentre of the area, as from it we have a free 360-degree view. Lake Lacar, the Chapelco mountain range, Cerro Abanico, the entire mountain range, Cerro Sabana, Mallo, Lago and Cerro Lolog, the inevitable Lanín Volcano and countless other points of reference.
