Welcome to Salto Del Laja
Halfway between Los Angeles and Chillán, the Río Laja plunges nearly 50m over a steep escarpment to form a horseshoe-shaped waterfall. Some have dubbed the sight a miniature Iguazú Falls when it's full, but the comparison is far-fetched. Still, there are great views from where the road bridges the Río Laja. This road is the old Panamericana, but a new Ruta 5 bypass to the west means that only a few buses between Chillán and Los Angeles detour through here. A cluster of tacky souvenir stands and competing restaurants are evidence of the Salto del Laja's popularity with Chileans on road trips or outings from nearby cities.
