  • Very pretty landscapes, several walks for all levels. Access from the South is from Melipeuco. First of all, there are 12km of road bitumen to the point of access (entry 6000 pesos for foreigners). It opens from 8:30 and close at 20: 00. Then the track begins. It is in pretty good condition until the Clearinghouse 18 km after the entrance. She's in worse shape and especially more rugged to the laguna Captren. Distances on the hiking trails are a bit under valued according to the GPS records, which explains the lengthy hiking time indicated on signs. The classic ride is the sendero Sierra Nevada, which leads to a beautiful point of view. Departure is at 6km from the center of information on and off to Melipeuco. Arriving on the trail, you can descend to the left on the playa Linda (but it's also nice to go there to relax after hiking) or go right to the main trail. The rise is without difficulty because the slope is moderate and steady. The trail is in good condition and there is only a little technical part after 6km to stoop under the branches while monitoring the roots. Once at the point of view we can go higher, but quickly it becomes more climbing than hiking. Distance total 15, 2km, elevation 672 m (with the hook by playa Linda). Another hike leads from the information center at the lagoon through the madre araucaria Captren. The tree is 2.5 km from the Center with 150 m vertical drop. We did not complete hiking up the lagoon. At the entrance to the Park, we can go see the truful truful falls. The falls are unspectacular, but the canyon is very nice (30 minutes taking his time).

  • Nature at its finest! The place is beautiful, the exuberance of the vegetation, forests, the Arcoiris lagoon, Conguillío Lake, Laguna Verde, the volcano, the araucarias... All I can say of the beauty of this park, certainly won't be able to reflect the experience of visiting it and live it. This is one of our country!

  • A place that leaves you delighted. We went from Temuco by father houses, delayed 2 hours approx. up to the entrance of the Park. We did the trail sierra nevada, a quiet trail, with almost no difficulty, where you can appreciate views of the volcano the llaima and villarrica in its maximum expression. You can see even condors flying very close to one, it is too beautiful.

  • Whatever time of the year you choose, it will probably be the best day of your life. I've been to many National Parks in Chile and this is still at the top. In the summer it can get crowded since it's got one of the best camping facilities plus different sizes of log cabins. The lake is engine-free so it's very clean. Perfect for kayaking. Super Family friendly. They even offer activities for kids like group games and walks.
  • Beautiful place! Beautiful hikes! We camped there 2 nights and we loved it!
  • Had a wonderful ride through the park on a motorcycle. Stopped for a picnic at one of the lakes. It was one of the best rides of our ten day trip.
  • Beautiful park! Easy to get to from Tecumo. Entrance fees per person are 4,000 pesos for a Chileno and 6,000 pesos for a foreigner during peak season, which starts in November. There's a dirt road through the park, which we did in our small rental car without any problems. There are a few spots in the road where you do need to go slow and be careful, but unless the weather is bad you should be okay with just a car. Recommend checking out the Seirra Nevada trail to the Condors Lookout, which is about 1.5 to 2 hours round trip.
  • We stayed at the Sendas Conguillio inside of the park. While it was pricey it was beautiful and we were there virtually alone (Dec 24-26). There is so much to see in the park; it's amazing and other-wordly. You should definitely see this place.
