Puente Salto del Laja
Chile

The jump or Salto del Laja La Laja River, is a cascading river of La Laja, located in the VIII Region of Santiago (Chile). It is located 25 km north of Los Angeles.


El Salto is comprised of four spectacular Laja River Falls, between 40 and 55 m in height. Upstream from the falls the river is quiet and very low and can be easily forded, and downstream is reduced to a deep, narrow canyon about 4 km long and 20 m wide. From there goes another 29 miles before its waters provide the Bio Bio river.

The surrounding landscape consists of steppe-like vegetation with species of Boldo, hawthorn, Quillaja, and trees such as poplars, willows, eucalyptus and others.

El Salto is one of the great tourist attractions for travelers of Route CH-5. Formerly it was possible to see the falls from the same road, the bridge over the Rio de la Laja, but after the granting of the path to the Autopista del Bosque SA company, it became a game in that stretch, and now must pay a toll to visit the place. In Falls there are a number of tourist services such as hotels, campsites, restaurants, picnic areas, crafts.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
