  • (Since inception). 1 conception via route 156 (Camino Santa Juana - birth - Renaico - Angol - Collipulli) up to Collipulli no problem, says that this route is more dangerous than leaving route 160 via Cabrero, false. I saved up to a time of trip!. (And $$ on toll, a toll just collect on this route, of $1,100.) Special mention to the traffic division that has all excellently signposted Collipulli-entering and exit to route 5 (vice versa also) 2.-from Collipulli tomas route South by 25 Kms. (by Ruta 5 Sur) app. until Victoria, ideal supply is there of food since in the Park all, everything is very expensive. 3.-from Victoria Road paved to Curacautín, (by route 181), app. 45 minutes of travel, there is gas and vulcanization (if it is that you remember you that you revisaste not tyres or other detail). 4. in Curacautin also there are similar services, here to take the route 925-S address Conguillio, a couple of kms. (10 app) by this route after Curacautín already ends the road paved and begins the gravel, walkways wide and gravel firm, which naturally is decreasing its quality in measure that you go in the Park. 5. from Curacautín to the entrance of the Park is 34 Kms. (can take you from 45 min to 1 hr.), then you pay $4,000 per person, give personal data and vehicle (this does not pay income), is located a couple of kms. before the Laguna Captrén. 6. from the park entrance at Laguna Captrén following installation that is the reception of the Park, already in the Laguna Conguillío, are 5.0 Kms. they should make them calmly, very sharp stone in the road, which is packed earth, gravel not, fed up with potholes, suggested caution, believe that it is the part more complex since it is 'down' to the Lake , I 5 kms. It took me half an hour, maybe 40 minutes. 7. at the same reception there is a restaurant, a souvenir shop, is facing the lagoon and public baths. In this place, administered by a private (paths Conguillío) there is record of the campsites, cabins and facilities available, we remain in Camping Los Ñirres (hence same meters from the parking lot of the reception), $25,000 site for tent for one night, with shared bathroom and camping table in a tiny place where fit car, tent and table. Schedules of showers in the morning and in the afternoon of 3 hours each shift (I remember hours), as well as cooking, absolutely do not smoke, fires in the facilities and surroundings, naturally. 8. There are cabins at prices more expensive and campings more cheap but without facilities later bordering the Conguillío Lake. 9. before to the reception area there is the trail Los Carpinteros, I do not know the difficulty that we did not. 10 westbound-> this campsites are more cheap and then the start of the trail Sierra Nevada (6.1 Kms. rising, with intermediate viewpoints - viewpoint Conguillío 0.8 Kms - and - Mirador Los Cóndores 2.5 Kms-for those who have time, preferred the Sierra Nevada, the view can Googling) even with the Los Condores viewpoint is a Trek entertaining, in consent virtually 90% of the way (pleasant breeze, within forests, araucarias, coigüe, canelos, ñirres, among other species), got in an hour with two arrests. The descent is more rapid. PS: Blocker, much, is painful exposure to the Sun. 11.-after of the trail Sierra Nevada, down at the beginning, the road leads us to the Arcoiris lagoon, (also), is 2.5 kms. (almost always to less than 30 kms/hr allows you to route) so that not are less than 10 minutes. 12.-after of the Arcoiris lagoon, Laguna Verde (or Quilillo) (Googling photos) are also 2.5 Kms. or a little more, the impressive thing here are the surroundings, where everything is volcanic soil, here I am sorry little signage, there are 3 different ways for vehicles, however only at a glance you can identify which most brings you closer to the place. 13. from conception to reception Conguillio Park, it took 6 hours driving. 14. from Green Lake to Concepcion, 5.45 hours it took. 15 I hope will be useful! PROS: Beautiful, I had expectations for everything he had heard and read and meets them absolutely. Cons: Absolutely commodified, prices are sky-high, pity that is delivered to concession of private administration of services areas, would be good to CONAF administer affordable some installations (at least campsites), 4,000 per person entry, at least 8,000 if two, are that you add 25,000 just for one night of camping, i.e. by less than 50,000 you can't go to this park to stay. To take this into account.
