In San Clemente we can buy some water for the day.
We will follow the international mountain pass toward Argentina. We will pass the Chilean customs. (Be prepared to show your passport. We DON’T exit Chile!). After this we follow the street for the next 10km to the parking place “Campanario“.
It will take around 2 hours for the easy climb to the waterfalls which are one of the most beautiful points in this region. During sunshine several big and many small waterfalls create beautiful rainbows.
The waterfalls are nearly unknown and totally untouched.
A real hidden gem. Apart from the roar of the big waterfalls, pure silence!
Returning to the car, we follow the mountain pass to a ford (river crossing) where dependant on the level of the river at the time we cross the river to the edge of the waterfalls.
Trip Highlight: Bathing on the Edge
Around 8 metersfrom the edge of the waterfalls is a basin in the river with calm water, where we can take a dip with the stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the sound of the waterfalls and the knowledge that just a few meters away the waterfall dives into an abyss over 100 meters deep.
