In this part of the trip we can see a beautiful view, product of many years of vulcanism and erosion in Rio Limay Valley, called Valle Encantado (Enchanted Valley). Then we get to Traful Valley to see the wonderful landscapes and its archeological remains. Before the Traful Valley we get to Cuyín Manzano Valley: a beautiful river surrounded of a huge wall of basalt, where, if we have good luck we can observe Condors that domains our sky. From there begins a valley of fertile lands and a microclimate that allows the agro-turist activity.
