Reserva Nacional Río Cipreses
This nature reserve is located 30km inland from
The source of the River Cipreses is found on the valley floor, access is via a narrow path suitable for donkeys or horses. In the past this river flowed from the start of the valley from the Cipreses Glacier, however, as time has passed the glacier has melted and what is left of it is currently sandwiched into the high part of the valley by a kind of plug made of rock. The river still flows from below the glacier which is a beautiful sight.
At the start of the glacier there are various nice features and further up at Cipreses Superior you can find “la mole del Dr. Hernán Cruz” – a large expanse of rock.
