“Lovely Hike with Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

An excellent several hour hike after taking the Teleferico up the mountain. One hike was straight up an exposed hill with panoramic views of the lakes and mountains around Bariloche. Another trail winds through trees with views around the other side of other lakes and mountains. We didn't make it all the way to the end of the second trail but still enjoyed the beautiful views. We had perfect weather and the autumn colors were spectacular!

“Fine, but there are better views in Bariloche”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A quick hike up a full dirt track road, so you get passed by lots of cars, trucks etc. The views are good, but the next day we did Cerro Campanario, and then Llao Llao, which are, in our view, better.

“Nice vista point”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

The cerro Otto is 1400 mts.(around 4500 ft) high. We travel in a confortable cable car.(Telesférico) in a 12 minutes trip to the top. There you have a nice 360° view of Bariloche and surroundings, with the spectacular lake Nahuel Huapi. A rotating cafetería permits you to admire this view while drinking hot chocolate with "medialunas"(croissants). Close to this is a small museum with three copies of natural size made in Italy of the Michelangelo´s David, Moses and La Piéta, that are worth seeing saving you a trip to Florence and Rome!!! This is our third visit to the Cerro Otto and plan to return soon.

“2 hour ascent of Cerro Otto 'off piste'”
Reviewed 14 March 2014 via mobile

We followed the line of the cable car up Cerro Otto this morning on foot.

Challenging in parts if climbing straight as ground very loose and dusty but a great experience though and views over Lago Nahuel Huapi and beyond are breathtaking.

Bring plenty of water and if fit, lunch for the top as they charge you 90pesos pp to enter the very basic cafe/ restaurant - this includes the cable down but to be honest it's not worth it. Descent will take you about an hour.
