Ventania's Massif 

The called and known Sierra de la Ventana is located about 625 km southwest of Buenos Aires city and belongs to Ventania massif, one of the oldest in America, formed in the Precambrian, more than 500 million years ago.

We propose a simple, short and intense program. Two days, to discover the highest of the province of Buenos Aires on foot, in a captivating setting of mountains and forests with surprising fauna.

Important:

Because of Covid-19 situation:

We aspire to travel in private cars (division of travel expenses; carpool) and in the camps use small tents for 1 or 2 people.

Schedule

Day 0 (previous day): Proposal to travel in private cars and spend the night in Tornquist or in the Funke ranch.

Day 1: Meeting at the town of Tornquist. Transfer to Estancia Funke. Equipment review and start walking! From the Glorieta we begin the ascent by the southwest towards the source of the Napostá River. We set up camp and from there we make a short walk to a pool and waterfall. Camp in the mountains.

Day 2: We get up very early. We`ll try the summit of Cerro Tres Picos (1239 m.a.s.l.); a walk of about 6 hours round trip to the highest peak in Buenos Aires province, with great views. On the way back, we`ll have a light lunch and later we will begin the descent to the ranch, where we will take the vehicles to return. End of our services.
