  • The walk is pulled (7 kms in ida, being some 4.5 of steep climb), besides the minor deviations for who wants to go to the waterfalls (two). Round trip, for those visiting the two waterfalls, of more than 15 km. To go with clothes, take a few equipment, food and water for 6:00 onsite. There's a bus that leaves the front of the bus station at the cost of CLP $ 3,600 (in Google Maps the bus terminal is marked with the name "JAC Buses"). Pay CPL $ 2,500 in low season (in alta, billed twice). Recommend!

  • To get the bus is taken from the terminal opposite buses JAC leaves at 8:30 (I recommend reach 8:00 to catch seat if not iras an hour of foot) is cancelled 3600 roundtrip. The Park is wonderful! with incredible views and huge trees! Waterfalls and lakes. Really worthwhile, that if consider it a trekking of effort are 5 hours round-trip. Take water and something to eat, since there is only a business at the beginning of the trail. AWARE THAT THERE ARE WOODPECKERS!

  • It should be noted that it should be long enough to be able to enjoy worry-free travel. The Lakes trail runs in five hours, back and forth. If you arrive early in the morning, you can take the tour from the park entrance to the lakes and forests of araucarias, appreciate the view and return quietly to take the bus back. Return buses are limited to 14 h and 19 h 30 the Huerquehue to Pucon. Inside the Park, the road requires physical effort, because there are rises in the mountains, but it compensates with incredible views that nature offers. Take things easy is essential, do not require the body. So we must consider the time. I made the mistake of taking the bus from 1 pm from Pucón, which limited my experience in the Park have to return at 19 h 30 bus. I could only walk to the lakes and return immediately. Of course, I enjoyed the views. Bring supplies such as water or food to replenish energy. Within the park there is only a small shop and that at the beginning of the tour.

  • Great for trekking and amazing natural environment
  • Beautiful park with great 5k hike.
  • Beautiful park for hiking!
  • One of the most beautiful National Park in Chile!
  • It is a magical Park, as you go drastically changes the vegetation in some sectors, the jumps and the feeling of being in a forest with magnificent trees. And this very well-kept. It is worth climbing to reach the Lakes.
