Parque Nacional Queulat, Puyuhuapi

4.8
#1 of 15 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.

    While we had much rain, so we enjoyed the visit to the Park and we could even see the hanging glacier. The Park is very beautiful and has a lush vegetation. It is a must-see for those who roam the region.

    The Ventisquero Colgante and the enchanted forest paths meet the beauty of the place with ease of access to enjoy them. Safety pins!

    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.
