One of a number of fantastic sights to behold as you travel along the Canyon. Here the road climbs up to the rim before descending on the other side thus the superb views.

It is a beautiful crystal clear river fed by a dam. The rapids are just fast enough for most people, not too fast. The zip lining is amazing, you are high above the river and in the mountains. Swimming is wondarful

This dam is better than El Nihuil one. El Nihuil is very big, but this lake is quiet, with better beaches.
