“DO not miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Beautiful!. special! so many lagunas.. spectacular views
Easy to lose the trail (although marked). But do not be concerend - you shall find your way again,,,
Not to be missed of you are arround. Worth the journey for sure.
They limit the number of persons entering the trails per day. Good idea! You can enjoy nature without the all other zillions (but you wiil never be alone. for sure you will meet other trasvellers). Bring coat, rain gear, water...
