We did a short hike to the first refugio due to time constraints on our end. The hike went through a lovely confluence of the Rio and the Confluencia - beautiful location with a snack bar. The hike is easy and well marked. There are other refugios for overnight, longer hikes. Beautiful country

We hike down and kind took a shortcut ending on a path surrounded by plenty of wild blackberry bushes. You end up at the river and the water is so beautiful and clear, and fresh.

We went up the winding road to the Mirador with splendid views to Rio Azul and the lush valley. In the distance we could see lake peulo and the towering snow capped mountains around. All along the way there were bushes filled with ripe berries just oozing with sweet juice waiting to be picked

It takes a 30 min hike to climb up the mountain and enjoy the great view. Worth all the while. Bring water with you.

Vidied Cajon del Azul. Take litre plus of water, your suit and a towel if you like to dip in glacier feed rivers and know you will get dusty if it has not rained. The last 30 minutes back to Wharton is a psin but the views are well worth it. This hike is mostly in the trees so a... More

Not a particularly hard walk, some hills, but absolutely gorgeous scenery, particularly the river and canyon, crazy clear blue water. Make sure to get as far as the Refugio Cajon del Azul for a beer and a bite to eat
