Laja Waterfall in Chile

Image from desktopnexus

The Salto de Laja is a series of four waterfalls on the Laja River, a few kilometers south of the Chilean city of Los Angeles, along the Pan American Highway.

These impressive cascades can be viewed from car and foot bridges. Those who want to get closer to the water can take a tour and view the falls from a motor boat.

Historically a spiritual site revered by the indigenous Mapuche people, the area is now a major tourist attraction, with fishing, kayaking, swimming, horse back riding and nature tours available for the many travellers who stay in the nearby hotels.
