The Salto del Laja is postal icon of the region of the Bío Bío. Come and meet one of the most beautiful attractions of this area.

Laja Waterfall is a spectacular cascade formed by the abundant waters of the Laja River. The river flows into a deep rocky canyon that has been drilled into by these raging rapids. It is said that this was a cult place where the old Mapuches would come and meditate, while the younger men should go through passing rites. During the Spanish colonization this was a battle area and a natural limit.

You can get to its four waterfalls through boardwalks installed there for tourists.

Location: Region of Bio-Bío, 152 km (95 mi) east of Concepción.  25 km (15.6 mi) north of Los Ángeles.
