Water:

Is the stream water safe to drink? As with any mountain region where lots of people trek, there will be pollution of water sources. The refuges provide safe drinking water; whilst out on the trails I would recommend treating water from streams. Recommended water filter: Sawyer Mini Filter (really small, practical & affordable!)

Transport:

Bariloche - Pampa Linda: There are tourist services daily during the summer months, in the morning (about 8.30am - confirm before travel), returning in the evening (5pm - confirm before travel). Ask at the Mountain Info Centre next to Club Andino and opposite at Transitando lo Natural for prices and timetable. Buy your tickets in advance, especially in the high season. Enquire for departures out of season which may as there may no be any unless there is enough demand. NO ticket office in Pampa Linda but you may be able to buy tickets on the bus in Pampa Linda subject to space - enquire in Bariloche before heading out. Enquire at the Otto Meiling and Paso de la Nubes Refuges as they may also offer bus ticket sales.
