Wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and lake from the rotating restaurant at the top of the cable car.

To reach Cerro Otto you have to travel in a somewhat dated cable car taking 4 in each cab. However no worries regarding safety. At the summit, there are marvellous views of Bariloche, Lago Nahuel Huapi as well as the lower summits of the Andes. The restaurant at the top is not somewhere at which to expect a gourmet experience... More

The walk will take you about 45 mins, you can get to a refuge called Berghof, from there you can take a short hike, there are lots of paths.

Cerro Otto is definitely worth a visit. The view of the city and the lakes surrounding it is amazing. It is quite far from downtown, however there is a shuttle that takes you back and forth from Centro Civico every 30 minutes, the shuttle is complimentary, you only need to pay the admission. Really recommended.

Was okay, some delay of the transportation. But nice view. But do not anything in your car, not even in your trunk. Bariloche is full of robbers.

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

a great trip in summer or winter. Great views of the region and a very cheap ticket. About $10. The lift is fast and you can spend about an hour up top enjoying the views and a cafe

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!
