Trekking Mesón Alto

We head for the Yeso valley, a beautiful pre-mountain valley surrounded by up-to-4000 mt high summits. We reach our starting point, Pulperia el Arriero. From here we go down a wide walking path which, apart from the unique landscape of the last ice age, takes us to a beautiful view over the Meson Alto glacier. After two hours of walking, we arrive to some wide mountain meadows. Here we will stop to rest and enjoy the view while having our exquisite lunch. We go back the same way we came.
