Argentina // The Lake District //

Cholila and around

Sitting amid prairie grasslands, 3km east of the junction of the RP-71 and the RP-15, the hamlet of CHOLILA, with its spectacular backdrop of savage peaks, seems to belong in the American West. So there’s no better setting for one of Patagonia’s most idiosyncratic sights – the cabin of Wild West outlaw Butch Cassidy. From Cholila, you can continue southwest through a glorious lush valley hemmed in by snowcapped mountains towards the northern gate of Parque Nacional Los Alerces.
