I went all the way up and I got very disappoint to find out that to visit the area I have to pay. It is like a monopoly of the mountain and I decided that I was not going to be part of that.

After reading some reviews we weren't sure what to expect from Cerro Otto but we figured it would be a quick trip there from town so decided to give it a go and we're glad we did. We took the public bus (50 or 51) from the town centre out to the telerifico which only took 10-15 minutes and cost... More

We went for launch at the restaurant at the top, but the waitress keep us waiting for 40 minutes. She never took our order and we finally couldn't have launch. Really the worst service ever.

Amazing view of the city and the lake, but don't go if it's cloudy. You won't see nothing. Get the teleferic tickets including the bus fare in the two kiosks located on Mitre street.

There are buses that depart from the centre of the city so it is very accessible. Cerro Otto offers a stunning view. My suggestion is to spend a whole day there, because you have a place where you can sit and have a light lunch and then continue to one of the paths it has. We chose the Habsburg Stone... More

Nothing too difficult, but great views of bariloche and the surrounding area. Was very dry and dusty in february 2014 (end of summer in Argentina)

An excellent several hour hike after taking the Teleferico up the mountain. One hike was straight up an exposed hill with panoramic views of the lakes and mountains around Bariloche. Another trail winds through trees with views around the other side of other lakes and mountains. We didn't make it all the way to the end of the second trail... More

A quick hike up a full dirt track road, so you get passed by lots of cars, trucks etc. The views are good, but the next day we did Cerro Campanario, and then Llao Llao, which are, in our view, better.

The cerro Otto is 1400 mts.(around 4500 ft) high. We travel in a confortable cable car.(Telesférico) in a 12 minutes trip to the top. There you have a nice 360° view of Bariloche and surroundings, with the spectacular lake Nahuel Huapi. A rotating cafetería permits you to admire this view while drinking hot chocolate with "medialunas"(croissants). Close to this is... More
