Try to go up on a clear blue day. The views of the lakes will take your breath away. Well worth the gondola ride (equipment made in Austria). Everything worked perfectly

Cerro Otto has lovely views reached by a cable car. Cost was 180 pesos (official rate 8.7p/US$1). Cerro Capinario has a slightly better view for about 160 pesos with a chairlift. I loved both. Cerro Otto has a revolving restaurant with pretty good food. It also had reproduction of Michaelangelos David etc! More fun were the trails in the area.... More

Great place to visit to enjoy the views of the beautiful lake but get ready to get very filthy. The dust there makes you come back pretty dirty. It all worth it, though!

Took the cable car up the mountain. Overlooks the entire area. Great sights and cable car was fun. At the top are several walking trails up and around the mountain top. Some can be challenging. Walking around the building though will allow 360 degree sights. Can get a bit windy up there so be ready. When the wind blows it... More

On the top of the Cerro Otto you will find a nice rotating restaurant with a really great view of the whole valley! You just need to sit, relax, and wait for the rotating restaurant to turn to get a view from another angle. From the top you can also do a small trekking to a close viewpoint, if you... More

We wandered over here begrudgingly on our last day in Argentina. I had some weird aversion to going since everyone said it was the thing to do in Bariloche. But it was super cool. We did a little hike to a nearby peak (like half a mile). It was good to work off the hot chocolate and croissants I scarfed... More

No lines. Cable car up and down was litke a sauna. Glass was somewhat distorted/scratched so not terribly good for taking pictures. Views were very good. Hiking available to upland forest. Disco and rotating restaurant up top. After trip down, ice cream spot just behind the parking lot.

We hiked to the top of Cerro Otto by taking the very straight up route right beneath the lift. It is very, very sandy and washed out. We are two very active and fit individuals in our late twenties, and we hike and trek a lot (we hiked for 15 days to Everest Base Camp in November). For us, it... More

Nice ride to the top on the cable car and then a lovely walk through quiet woods to the view point at Habsbuerga
