Welcome to Llanada Grande & Beyond
After the Lago Tagua-Tagua crossing from Puelo, the gravel road continues by mountainsides peppered with patches of dead coigüe trees (killed by fire but tragically pretty) and lands still traversed by gaucho families on horseback and darting wild hares. This is Llanada Grande – you are now out of bounds. The road is being slowly forged all the way to Argentina – it now goes as far as the Río Barranco, just northeast of Segundo Corral, but local resistance is high; it would butt up against Parque Nacional Lago Puelo across the border, anyway, so it seems likely Argentina will carry it on from there. Most treks start in Llanada Grande and take different routes along the valley, including unforgettable jaunts to Lago Azul and Argentina. To truly go off the grid, Lago Las Rocas and Isla Las Bandurrias is your destination in waiting.
