Up the Teleferico

One must be prepared to be spontaneous and impulsive in Bariloche because the weather could change rather suddenly.  With open skies it was the ideal conditions to enjoy a trip up the local cableway. 

Loving Bariloche; just before going up the cableway

We bought our tickets in the main street just before lunch, giving us enough time to buy hamburgers from a vendor, before the bus arrived to fetch us.The bus ride to the cableway is just a couple of minutes out of town.

The trip up the mountain takes about ten minutes on the cableway.  For those who are more energetic and can afford the time, the 3 hour climb is demanding.

As we floated above, cocooned in our little hard boiled eggs, we saw a number of people below us in various stages of exhaustion as they attempted the lengthy climb.At the top of the mountain is the only revolving restaurant in Argentina.  With a 360 degree view of the lakes and mountains it makes for spectacular dining.
