The bus takes you from the Independencia park in town. The views are spectacular. Visit the revolving restaurant - its worth it for the view

The view was awesome but ticket costs 160 pesos which is much higher than cerro companario ?(100 pesos )and if one sees cerro companario first and then cerro otto then you will not like cerro otto view ...better to do cerro otto first and then cerro companario .....the bus picks one from city centre and drops there itself ....

Easy to get to this mountain which is a 15 minute bus ride from the city center. Transportation by bus is included in the price of the gondola ride (Telferico) and the bus stop is located at a kiosk in town. The price was 160 pesos (prices seem to change frequently and thus you can't rely on the prices quoted... More

Frankly, if you have already visited Cerro Campanario (by a landslide the best tour in Bariloche and top10 views of the world according to National Gepgraphic) you can skip this one. It´s more expensive than Campanario and it cannot survive the comparison in views. The attraction is a revolving cafeteria whose service I have never liked, even though the prices... More

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
