The small tour starts at the foot of the rock on a farm's land. After crossing some fields the path starts its way up to the Cerro. Up there you have an amazing view all over Puerto Natales, the sea and the mountains!!

Try riding a horse, or doing a trekking... looking up the sky and the funny clouds upon your head with the cold patagonian wind. Certainly, something to do it again!.
