  Mirador Arrayán
by Constanza

As you enter the Arrayanes National Park the road opens into two options. The one to the right, with steps, will take you to Mirador Arrayán.

On the way there will be enough to see, observe and take with you in your mind's eye. Vegetation is dominated by the huge "coihue" trees, "lauras", "maquis" and parasites such as wild orchids and creepers like the "mutisia reina" with its orange daisy like flowers and the "mutisia virreina" with its dark pink daisy like flowers.

You will be able to hear birds such as the "chucao", "ratoneras", "rayaditos" or the southern parrot.

Form the look out points you will have a panoramic view of the Nahuel Huapi arms Machete, Rincón and Ultima Esperanza. You will also see Bahía Brava, the island of Fray Menéndez and the Andes.

The Local Guide you have chosen will help you identify the different peaks, the villages on the other side, the best fishing spots and the local sagas and legends.

The next look out posts are Messidor I and Messidor II from which you can see Bahía Mansa and the Puerto Angostura pier, the building of Parques Nacionales, the Hotel Angostura and other buildings and the Messidor Castle.
