Mendoza is a semi-arid desert, though the tree-lined streets and lush grape vines seem to suggest otherwise. Thanks to native resourceful technology, an ingenious irrigation system was built, channeling Andean melted snow into the city and surrounding farmland. Furrows cut paths through the countryside and large cement ditches, known as Asequias (A-say-key-As), line every city street. In this excursion experience the city, its people, its history, and sites. Experience its avenues, the ruins of San Francisco, Independencia Square/ San Martin Park and Cerro de la Gloria are part of the urban heart of the Province of Mendoza.

Villa Traful is considered one of the favorite excursions in the area. This region offers one of the most wonderful landscapes. We can see nature, archeological places, and a visit this beautiful Mountain Village surrounded by forest, creeks and its principal attraction: the Traful Lake. Depart Villa La Angostura and take the road towards San Carlos de Bariloche to reach Confluencia Traful. Witness the change of the landscape: see how the Forest starts to disappear as we go through the Patagonic Steppe. In this part of the trip we can see a beautiful view, product of many years of volcanic activity and erosion in Rio Limay Valley, called Valle Encantado (Enchanted Valley). Then we arrive at Traful Valley to see the wonderful landscapes and its archeological remains. Before the Traful Valley we get to Cuyin Manzano Valley: a beautiful river surrounded of a huge wall of basalt, where, if we have good luck we can observe Condors that dominate the sky. From there begins a valley of fertile lands and a microclimate that allows the agro-tourist activity. Before we get to Villa Traful we arrive to the "Wind Balcony", that is a cliff of glacial origin that rises 70 meters over the level of the lake and allows a panoramic views. After this stop, we continue our way to Traful. We arrive for lunch time to this Village of 500 habitants, which is hidden in the forest. Then we will continue the trip coming back via Seven Lakes road, across the magnificent Portezuelo that takes us to 930 meters sea level. See Mirror and the Correntoso Lake, before returning to Villa La Angostura.
