Description: An easy family trek (with children) on a gentle ascent to achieve a great view of the Paleo lake Sofía and Prat Mountain range. Cave 4 of Laguna Sofía was a Patagonian panther burrow during the Pleistocene; with a depth of 6 meters, remains of mylodon and saber-toothed tiger, guanacos and other small species were found here.

It should be noted that in one of these caves, the most important find in the province was made: “An intact campfire”, the closest thing to human remains dating 10,000 years back, was found under a large rock. Today remains of campfires and animals are found in the Institute of Patagonia in Punta Arenas.

Our tap water comes from the close by waterfall which also provides us with hydraulic power. We do not have descent internet or telephone signal (only within the reception area, depending on the weather conditions).
