13-Feb-2014 -- On the route 237 is the village Piedra del Águila. Outside the village we bypass the confluence at approximately 3 km but we continue another 4 km till we reached the turnoff, which leads to the hydro power station. This road leads as close as 700 meters to the confluence.

We parked the car and started the walk. It is not an easy walk and at some stages very steep. The last 15 meters are the most difficult and dangerous ones since it is very steep and the rock is very brittle and big pieces break off. It took us 1.5 hours to be back at the car. Good hiking boots are necessary to visit this confluence.
