Dominated by the Patagonian Andes, the pristine Parque Nacional Queulat is a vast national park largely unspoiled by human influence and known for its remarkable variety of natural attractions. The 150,000 hectare (339,000 acre) park features tall, snowcapped mountains, lakes, lagoons, and fjords. Arguably the park's biggest feature is the Hanging Glacier, which creates two rushing waterfalls that drop into a milky white lagoon. Explore the park's evergreen forests and fjords, where you can encounter a large variety of colorful birds, Chilean dolphins, the world's smallest deer species, and on the rare occasion, pumas.

Most of the Park runs through drive by Ruta 7, and on the way there are some viewpoints and small trails (few) most important trails are the enchanted forest and Ventisquero Colgante. The Ventisquero Colgante Glacier is in the main part of the Park, paid access (5000 pesos for foreigners). There are three ways to view the glacier, the trail of 3.3 km (ida 2:30), by a mirador (5 minutes walk from the parking lot) and for access by platform (including accessible for wheelchairs), 50 m long. The vision of the glacier is good even in the options easier than 3.3 km trail. The mirador of this long trail if you have a broader view, with a lake. The trail is officially categorized as average, is a relatively steep climb especially the first third. Take into account that in moderate step climb takes around 2:30. There are some focosndenlamanno way, but it is possible to Pierce all carefully without getting dirty. There is a point in the last part, which goes through a very wet, as a small source. It wasn't deep and carefully we could pass without getting wet. The back, walking also moderately, lasts about 2 hours.

You can also make a quick visit to the Vestisquero Suspension, a waterfall from the melting of a glacier. Amazing! The road is being paved, so it's possible that in the near future be much easier to reach the place that today.
It is majestic. Be on the lookout and contemplate the hanging glacier, and feel the ice breaks, is a date with nature that few can have. To do so, is on the southern highway and is priceless!
Very nice Park. The hanging glacier is spectacular, recommended to make both the long trail and the Lake. The trail of the enchanted forest is also very nice.
Incredible. Great to see everything in one day. The road to the glacier is spectacular and the facilities are first.
Visit the Queulat National Park, it should be considered a must in your route along the southern road. With a surface of 154,093 hectares. In this section, is the hanging glacier glacier, situated at 7,800 m from the sea shore. Its flora and fauna is characterized by lush ferns and native trees such as tepa, Myrtle, and lumas, attractions which will make you live a real contact with the wild nature of the aysen lands, and if you're lucky, you'll enjoy the presence of some curious pudu, puma or Fox; or well, playful birds such as the black woodpecker, pitios, chucaos or the Huet-Huet. "
Beautiful, totally recommended, the trail to the glacier is 3 km more or less
