Trekking until the "Mirador"

It's a nice walk until the "Mirador", with a path well marked. It can be done in 3 or 4 hours, and it's not much trouble for whom is used to do this kind of activity.

You Will need good legs and good knees The way up is hard for 1:45, then it is 1: 20 easy, With cows and lakes and then a difficult 30 minutes to the mirador... But the View is so good. 4 volcanos, 3 lakes, mountains and trees The way down was for me even more difficult and long but this... More

Its a really breathtaking walk..in two ways: First there is a 2h steep climb to get to the first plateau...you really must be in shape!;-) Go there early so its not too hot! After 3.5h you will be awarded with great scenery!! You get to see all the volcanoes!

This seems to be a new reserve. We hiked up based on a Lonely Planet information. Km to the lake and panorama view point must be seriously off, when we were long past the distance we thought it would take is, we turned around and went home. A good decision, since according to GPS we were far away from the... More

The main trail in this private reserve is both long and steep, and features various flora found on different heights around Pucon. However, there was no one at the reserve's entrance, and the refugios are all abandoned, so one would do well to research before going (and print your own map)

A very hidden access to start, followed by the steepest and dustiest hill we have faced during our week hikes in pucon takes us to this less beaten park of the area. The view on top is very pretty, the lakes are not as nice as huerquehue though.

I arrived in Pucon around 8:15 after an overnight bus from Santiago and checked into my hostel. Since it was too late to do the Volcano trek (6:30) and I had missed the earlier bus to Huerquehue National Park, this was an ideal alternative as there are very regular buses to and from the Santuario and I didn't want to...

A friend of mine recommended me a hike in this nature reserve. Thanks to him, we have discovered a place with beautiful landscapes, less well known that Huerquehue National Park, but just as beautiful and much less crowded. I recommend this hike to all nature freaks and those who love the silence.

Steep and tough hike up but rewarded with the most stunning view you can imagine! Three outstanding volcanoes (Lanin, Villarrica and Llaima) are waiting for you, a lotof beautiful araucaries and small lagoons, nearby 360 degree of absolute fantastic, untouched nature. Try to be up there for sunrise or sunset. Easiest way to do so is to bring your tent,... More

I did the hike to the Mirador at El Cañi last week in sunny weather and the view was fantastic. You get to see the volcanos of the region, beautiful auraucaria trees, the lagoons, many lizards and even gigantic spiders. But don't worry. I was told their bite is not dangerous. Similar to the sting of a wasp. Anyway, they... More
