  • What a great park is this. You can with a good 4 x 4 car itself through drive and a walk here and there. The rate is 6000 pesos per person, but those are well worth it! You ride between lava fields and forests with "umbrella" trees. Araucaria trees are the sacred trees of the Mapuche Indians.

  • The Park is beautiful, with my daughter we did hikes, some dream places, I hired the services of a guide, is called Nicolas Munoz, excellent guide and service in General, recommended 100%, absolutely family, the only bad when we went to the office of Conaf, which is inside the Park, the disgusting bathrooms, have a beautiful fireplace, but without fire, also the day of the hike was very ice cream, ahhhh and there was nobody of the conaf office. This was September 18, date in which we had many tourists. I hope to return in the summer, in general (except for the office of conaf), else incredible.

  • As it is possible that the collection of the park be can reversed on the roads? It is a penalty that a beautiful place of Chile empolve with a road that you can not travel more than 10 Km/hr, no car that resist, that andube my Jeep but I custionaba in the dstribucion of the funds obtained from the Park and the business of tourism for a so important as Congullio National Park. Vamos Chile!

  • Nice park but very expensive! Some good hikes, especially Sierra Nevada. Great views of the surrounding landscape. The campsites are ok but constantly over crowded (in summer anyway). Staff do not seem to stick to their own rules imposed of no more than 10 people per site, whilst other sites had very few people in them. There is hot water in the showers from 6pm. Bathrooms were fine, not great but not horrendous. We found it very easy to hitchhike in and out from Curacautin, as public transport is limited to one bus a day.
  • I love it! A place that you need to meet if you are in the south of Chile. You have rent a good car, because the road is in bad condition, but that is just a detail... when you arrive there... you feel it like a magic place! I recommend it 100%
  • 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.
  • one of the best parks in Chile, opening hours in winter until 4:00 p.m.
  • Beautiful place! Beautiful hikes! We camped there 2 nights and we loved it!
