Trip Planner: South America / Chile / Aisen Region / Villa Cerro Castillo / Paredon de las Manos de Cerro Castillo
Cerro Castillo is a jagged rocky peak located in the Aysén del General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo Region of Chile, within the Cerro Castillo National Reserve. Castillo means castle in Spanish, and the steep basalt walls of the mountain indeed make it look like one. On its sides are a few small glaciers and lakes fed by them.ApproachCerro Castillo is 75 km south of the city of Coyhaique along Carretera Austral. There is a small village Villa Cerro Castillo just off the road. The base of the mountain can be approached from the road in one day along Estero Parada river. An alternative is the excellent 4-day hike that starts on a spot called Las Horquetas Grandes on Carretera Austral, goes through forests, has two river crossings (no bridges), and goes over a 1,400 m mountain pass adjacent to the rock walls of Cerro Castillo. The area is remote and sees less than one hiking party per day during the season.ClimbingFirst ascent: February 10, 1966, a party of Chilean university students Gastón Oyarzun, Osvaldo Latorre, Antonio Marcel and Raúl Aguilera climb north side gully.Second ascent: February 4, 1976 Nick Groves with New Zealand climbers Tom Clarkson, Mike Searle, John Mayrick y and Lauchi Duff reapeted Chilean route and finished a 20 m under the summit.Third ascent: December 5, 1982 Yugoslavs Tone Golnar and Ljubo Hansel, New Zealander David Waugh and South Korean Chil Kyou Son teamed together to make the first ascent of the southeast face of Cerro Castillo.

It is poorly signposted and only indicates Museum School (also beautiful restoration of the building effort). The Guide has lived all his life in this village and knows many stories on its people and on the wall of hands that gives us more questions than answers. There are more academics who come to conclusions about the purpose for which the authors of these pi had temperatures of more than 3000 years.

But are, after all, just under 3000 years old. You will receive many more information about life on the continent prior to the arrival of Europeans in addition on an interesting, almost one-hour hike. In addition, the environment is worth a visit!
