Parque Nacional Queulat, Puyuhuapi

4.8
#1 of 14 in Outdoors in Aisen Region
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. Put Parque Nacional Queulat into our Puyuhuapi route website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Puyuhuapi.

  • Beautiful place, in spite of the "enchanted forest" was closed by as much rain and that could appreciate it the hanging glacier by rain. The walk in the place called disconnected all and appreciate the flora of the sector. There are 2 walks, one of approximately 20 min (low complexity) until you reach the sector where it exits a boat that takes you to more closely see the glacier; the other is 1, 30 ida and other 1, 30 hrs return, is steeper and on rainy days it is difficult to go up the large amount of mud which is format sector. Nevertheless is a place that you can not miss being in Aysén!

  • The glacier located in the midst of a lush vegetation with lots of water. Well signposted trails. Medium-sized facilities.

  • We went on a rainy day, but still paid off to feel the power of nature. We made the short walk to the lookout point of vetisquero and the bridge. We found everything beautiful! Worth knowing.

  • Very nice Park, apparently has an extremely diverse flora. 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.

  • Compulsory stop for those who roam the southern road, is an unforgettable landscape for nature lovers 😍 would happily go. There are several paths to tour the Park, you have to go with time to know enchanted forest with good weather, with lots of rain, some trails are cut by the current of the river. The path to the hanging glacier is short, also you can go on boat across the lagoon to see the glacier much closer, but additional trekking to get another view. Outside of the Park close to the entrance, there is a place where you can lease parts or lease land for camping, also rent bikes there.

  • Excellent Park, some trails, Ventisquero Colgante (3.3 km, about 2:00 and a half round trip trail hard, steep and with a lot of mud and a small shallow river, with attention gives to spend at all without getting wet or getting dirty). The view is really beautiful and worth. The enchanted forest trail was closed indefinitely because there was an avalanche (this in October 2017).

  • Good place. Clean bathrooms and showers. The walk to the glacier on the trail and in the raft are fantastic
