  • Excellent place for hiking, if there is some 2-3 hours time, can make a beautiful trail, with a lookout point with a spectacular view. If the idea is to go to camping, you can only upload if you have a stove to gas, which you must show in the Administration to register. There are beautiful places, but a great walk (4 hours walking), and if you have a 4 x 4, you can save time to reach the lagoon for example.

  • Full of history and nature walks, it's beautiful, there are many flora and fauna and the environment moves. Climb up to the stone white and the view is magnificent. I am not a sportsman and I could upload without a problem, I recommend all seasons, each has its charm.

  • spectacular view when you're on top. walk is not too difficult but still takes its toll on the way back ( around 25km).
  • Impressive place. Marvelous landscapes, particular geological formations and a wide biodiversity. Excellent infrastructure and camping areas. There are different routes for the day and crossings that connect with the Radal Siete Tazas National Park. The famous brickwork, as lagoons, waterfalls, volcanoes and immense forests make whenever you visit it, you find surprises. Please do not make fires in the kitchen and be careful with the stoves. If is deep, return with all the trash and more. No trace.

  • Beautiful and indescribable landscape. A very pleasant experience for all kinds of adventurers and all kinds of physical condition. You can be short and long distance trekking, on land and in snow. It is one of the most beautiful landscapes I have referred to in Chile.
