Photographer's Note

Shortly after taking off from Bariloche the Lanin volcano (3776m, It's base is located at 1200m asl) appears in sight, in this view it is about 130km away because the plane was flying over Piedra del Aguila dam and that is the distance between the volcano and the dam, taken from google earth.



"A volcano covered with permanent snow

Lan璯 volcano is surrounded by beauty in the form of lakes, valleys and mountains, of which you can obtain a panoramic view from the refuges situated in the middle of the mountain or from its top, which is 3,776 meters above sea level. From there, if you turn around, you can see the Llaima, Villarrica, Quetrupill嫕, and Osorno volcanoes, as well as Tronador Mount and Tromen, Quill幯, Huechulafquen and Paimn lakes.


The wonderful landscape of the Patagonia range and the recent boom of the so-called adventure tourism, has led thousands of people per year to ascend this volcano, located around 60 kilometers from Jun璯 de los Andes, following the road that takes to the border pass known as Tromen or Mamuil Malal.

Except for those who have been explicitly forbidden by doctors to make efforts, this tour is considered suitable for everybody, from 14 years old on. Anyway, it is recommended to do the ascent accompanied by a guide authorized by the National Park"
