A bit scary getting up there, but go for a hike through the forest when you get up there. It does not get any better.

If you are looking for a great 360 degree view of the area it doesn't get any better than this. It has a rotating restaurant with reasonably priced food and drinks. There is a hang glider launch and we were lucky enough to be here on a nice day with lots of hang gliders. There are lots of hiking trails... More

This view is stunning and it needs to be seen. There are tons of ways to spend money once you get to the top. I could not believe people were sitting around eating and drinking and not outside taking in the view. But the Argentines love a good sit down. Go, view and go. Watch the timetables of the bus...

We avoided the bus and walked from downtown bariloche to the gondola teleferico station (about one hour walk) along the water edge. Would recommend this to young travelers for good sites along the way. In beautiful weather it is worth the time. The gondola ride up the mountain is 350AR (~20$) which is decent despite others reviews it is expensive,... More

My husband and I felt as though we truly were on top of the world. The 360 degree view of mountains and lakes was truly magnificent. We had a blast taking the gondola chairlift up the trail which was highly recommended over making the climb. Additionally, the cafe at the top is the perfect stop for a snack break, afternoon...

Great to hike up! Dont take the cable car, but just bus 50 or 52 from av belgrano and let it stop at Picasa a Piedras Blancas. 1,5 hour up and wonderful views! Cable car 300 peso's pp. Too expensive!

Took the cable car and although a little expensive at about US$27 a head the views are awesome. Couldn't get into the cafe as a long queue was lined up and didn't have time to wait. Not much to do up there other than admire the views. I guess that's why it goes up there!!

We opted for the cable car/gondola up the mountain as we had already caught the public bus out but the walk up sounds better. The gondola was quite expensive at 35 NZD/ 25USD, but view was great at the top. I recommend walking to the higher look out outside of the patrolled area to the left of the restaurant for... More

We may have been very lucky with the weather as it was extremely sunny and clear but the views are well worth going for. Would advice using the free dedicated bus that offers transfers from the town to the bottom of the cable car on an hourly basis as it is infinitely more sensible than walking there along a rather...
