Reserva Nacional Malalcahuello, Malalcahuello

(4.8/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
Survey the volcanic charcoal landscapes of Reserva Nacional Malalcahuello, a desert panorama reminiscent of the Sahara but with more of an ash like, dark appearance stretching for 303 sq km (116 sq mi). The two hour trek shows the best facets of the national park, though longer trails are available. Take plenty of water along as the desert like conditions here make it very hot. 4X4s can be rented for those who would prefer not to traverse the uphill volcano ascent by foot.

  • A very nice place to visit, an unforgettable experience, travel in the middle of the araucarias and spectacular scenery

  • It did not meet our expectations, the staff was not well qualified. The food was rather fast food.

  • This reserve is enough to travel it by car on the roads that pass through it to be amazed with the zip and beautiful landscapes that can be watched at any time of the year. The contrast between Lonquimay volcano and its ancient Araucaria surrounding the road is beautiful. Safety pin!
