Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
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.

  • We visited the Park to April 2016. Staid at Puyuhuapi (Residencial "Doña Gladys") and we moved via public transportation. The Bosque Encantado can be reached by taking the first morning bus to Coyhaique (5:00), but it is best to stop auto-because the bus arrives before the opening of the Park. It costs 3,000 Chilean pesos (€ 4) and routes of trekking is about 2 km. The Ventisquero Colgante is located a few kilometres away and entrance costs 5,000 Chilean pesos (€ 6.50). is required to register at the entrance (with passport number). The hiking trails are 4; You can camp inside the Park (the prices are pretty high) and rent kayaks and canoes.

  • Wonderful National Park, beautiful forests, rivers and the impressive glacier! We spent all day walking different paths. To get to the place it is difficult to access if you're not in their own car, there are two options to get from Puyuhuapi: first take a bus to 6.00 in the morning bound for Coyhaique, get off at the entrance of the Park (about 40 minutes) and walk towards the inside. The other option; boys who administered the park camping offer to take of back and forth in a Van leaving at 8.00 hrs and returning to 19 hrs (10). Within the trails the most impressive is the road to the lookout (about 4 to 5 km roundtrip) going up and down stairs, around 3 to 4 hours. They also offer a boat ride where you can see more about the glacier (7mil p/p). The venstisquero pendant, a place that you must visit in life!

  • Another of those majestic parks national of Chile. There are adequate facilities and properly marked trails. There are different routes and panoramic of the snowdrift. Follow the instructions of the Rangers and, as always, leave no trace.
