  • Really a beauty. Lots of nature. The effort of the climb is worth it. There is a bus that passes through Ralun and passage costs between 3000 to 5000 CLP. And they take you to the entrance of this Valley trail.

  • Super recommended to visit this place if you are in the South of Chile! We had figured out from this place Argentina and reserve 2 nights camping Board, hoping to get rest, hike the next day, and down the other. I think that it is good to sleep 2 nights above minimum. We arrived from Ensenada to noon, we buy empanadas by the side of the road by cochamo, last place to stock up. We pass by the Church, which overlooks the estuary of reloncaví, enter the path that leads to the path that leads to the Valley, 8 km of gravel road are in very good condition and left the car in the parking lot of a campsite that rents horses to climb even though we had no reservation do horses, saw as a good option to find out how much they charged up with them, knowing that they were 11 kms from rise! and taking into account that we were already walking. We were told 30000 each and we have no doubt it... the truth that was an excellent decision. We climbed up to 15 pm (time that closes the path) and 18.30 pm arrive at the Valley. Somewhat tired, but neither point of comparison to go walking. All the way is really beautiful, crossing footprint of livestock which were formed for centuries that afternoon set up the tent, and we slept in an absolute peace, since there is plenty of space between carp and CARP... The same landscape of the Valley is really beautiful, in the middle of giant walls of stone. And when we got also decided to walk we were going to do the next day. We decided to walk to dry the Dove glacier. More than nothing because the others required a greater difficulty. Question that the next day we got up, had breakfast, and undertook the Trek was really very nice, but exhausting. First we passed by the slides, which are 10 minutes away from the campsite, we crossed the river congeladisimo... To get to the glacier, it is necessary to walk 3 hours through the jungle, first get to dry wall, where several climbers make their first experiences, and still climbing roots, climbing stone with rope, crossing rivers through trunks that are 2 or 3 meters tall (eye c (on these parts that I detail because they do that the path is not suitable for certain people), until you reach the river Dove, there are 45 minutes more upstream to reach the source of the river and see there the glacier (dry now). It's really beautiful to see these queparecen walls a great rest black. In the middle is there ice / snow, forming caves where we had the luck to spend 20 m within one and out the other side. Actually it was a refrigerator! very nice experience. The turn is simpler because it is downhill, and takes about 2.30 hours approx. I forgot to tell you that there are colored ribbons tied to follow the path to good trees, that day arrived already tired, bathed with cold water that there is, and the next day took down What we had come up with the horses. Killer also down as building up the cansanciod and the last days. We went at 4.30 hs. Ultimately, super recommended East place!
