If you are more of a hiking person and you are looking for real contact with nature and mountain, you must visit the Challhuaco Valley this winter.

It's friendly geography creates the perfect area to walk and discover one of the most wonderful Lenga forest that will make you feel in a fairy tale... Imagine yourself leaving your footsteps marked on a white blanket of snow while you make your way through the woods, visualizing some birds such as Chimangos and Woodpeckers birds. In this place, you will enjoy the silence of the winter clam.

This Valley has soft slopes allowing you to hike easily without getting too exhausted. It is one of the best areas of the National Park to have a lovely family day in contact with nature or simply go with some friends for a walk to enjoy the views and visit the "Neumeyer" hut.

Numeyer mountain hut is located 12 kms south from Bariloche, at 1.320 mts above the sea level.
It is quite a fun adventure to arrive to this shelter by car. Driving through the valley and crossing many streams, you will see on the way Mt. Otto, Catedral, Ñireco and Carbon to the right. until you find yourselves immersed into a deep forest, announcing the arrival to the shelter.

This hut is the starting point of all the many alternatives to enjoy of this beautiful place. I suggest you doing at least one of these two following options. Come on! What are you waiting for?
