Monumento Natural Cerro Nielol, Temuco

4.0
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Temuco
Stand among the tall wooden sculptures at Monumento Natural Cerro Nielol and gaze out over Temuco. The indigenous sculptures commemorate the 1881 transfer of the surrounding land from the hands of the Mapuche people to colonial control. This agreement was a double-edged sword, as it allowed the establishment of Temuco, but also had negative effects on the area's indigenous population. Explore the surrounding park, which offers plenty of enjoyable walking trails, a lagoon, and an environmental center, as well as several picnic sites. Keep an eye out for red, bell-shaped "copihue," Chile's national flower, which flourishes in the park.

  • To scroll through a day of summer on your visit to Temuco. Very pleasant walk by the fresh trails that improve heat, lots of vegetation is seen. And at the end of the climb, you reach the viewpoint to appreciate the city in all its magnitude. Recommend as a sport, tourism, rest, relaxation, peace and tranquility.

  • This is the of the city, practically located in the Center. You can upload in auto and reach the mirador (entry is paid). And from here, take photos or upload walking trails and enjoy its native forests, this last is a great experience, especially for children. The trails have a minimum difficulty, but both upload the same may tire to elderly people. Definitely the place to visit in Temuco!

  • Trails well demarcated, well-preserved forest and several viewpoints overlooking different angles of the city. Mild climb (for those who have a minimum of fitness). Worth it if you don't have any other option.

Where to stay in Temuco

Budget options can be hard to come by in Temuco, unless you're willing to stay in the busy and noisy area near the main train station. For something cleaner, larger, and more secure, consider the districts between the main square and the university, where you can stay comfortably without breaking the bank. Pricier hotels in the city center offer all the modern amenities and provide free shuttles to the airport.
