Caviahue-Copahue is a place that has a little bit of everything. In the winter you can go skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding, and climbing. In the summer there are waterfalls, hiking, and you can even hike to the crater of the volcano Copahue, a place with a sulfur lake! There are holes there that make natural saunas! There's much more to see, but I'm sure I'm forgetting everything.
This is one of the highest hills of Villa La Angostura. You can go trekking up and down the mountain within a day. The vegetation keeps you entertained as you go, there is an incredible amount of different species of plants, fungi and insects. The view from the summit is moving and makes you feel absolutely insignificant compared to nature. The trip can be difficult in places but that just makes it even more fun and adventurous. This spot is perfect for those who consider themselves fans of adventure and exercise in general.
This rural school is located in the Curruhuinca Mapuche community, and was first built in 1919. The creation of this school was an express order of the chief Abel Curruhuinca Dr. Francisco P. Moreno, best known as the Perito Moreno, who was then the President of the National Education Council. It is nestled inside the Lanin National Park. We really loved walking in this area, among the oaks, hearing the crunch of the carpet of leaves that covered everything golden and reddish tones during the autumn.
The school is built out of wood and perfectly manicured. Its story was told in a 2008 film, and features the Mapuche language teachers and community members from Curruhuinca, including Lonko (considered the spiritual director of the community). It shows what makes legends, culture, customs and songs of the Mapuche. From there, we went into the Valley and to visit the house where they filmed the TV series "Alen Luz de Luna". The information for the school and the website of the Administration of the Park , located on Calle Eduardo Frey 749 in San Martin de los Andes.
