20-Jan-2007 -- Esta confluencia la realice en Viaje a Bariloche, queda accediendo por eñ camino que va a la represa de Pichi Picun Leufu, cerca de Piedra del Aguila (Neuquen), se accede comodamente con el vehiculo hasta unos 700m de la confluencia, luego hay que caminar o mas bien cruzar 3 cañadones y en el faldeo del cerro, entre un grupo de piedras di con la confluencia. Estos cañadones complican un poco la travesia, siendo conveniente ir con bota o borcego por las espinas de alpataco, etc. De todas maneras entre ida y vuelta demore poco mas de 1 hora. La vista desde lo alto de este cerro es muy linda, pudiendo apreciarse todo el complejo de Pichi Picun Leufu y el Rio Limay.

20-Jan-2007 -- I visited this confluence while on a trip to Bariloche. It is on the road that goes from the Pichi Picun Leufu dam, near Piedra del Aguila. It can be reached by car with ease getting to within 700 meters and then walking through three ravines. Between a group of rocks I found the point. The ravines complicate this visit a bit, I suggest you come with hiking boots. The time to get there and back took just over one hour. The view from atop of this hill is beautiful and you can see the whole Pichi Picun Leufu complex and the Limaty river.
