Beautiful park with amazing scenery!

We caught the 8.30am bus from Buses Caburgua in Pucon which took about 45 mins each way. A return trip cost about $7 Australian each. Not sure what time buses leave to the park apart from this one but they return from the park at 2.10pm, 5.10pm and 7.40pm.

We did the Los Lagos trek, the ranger told us it would take about 5 hours but we wanted to be on the 2.10 bus back to Pucon so did it in about 4 and a half hours. This was pretty tough, we set a fairly fast pace and to get to the lakes it's pretty much all uphill so it was exhausting!

Definitely worth it for the views though!

Make sure you take your lunch and some water so you can make a day of it!

We did the Los Lagos loop, about 14 km. The switchbacks wore us out, but the lakes and the rest of the trail were so beautiful, it was worth it. If you plan to do the loop, expect it to take up most of your day.

W had fun hiking. It's a beautiful park. We made the mistake if going the too late in the day to get in the full lakes hike, but that apparently is the most beautiful. We really I enjoyed the waterfalls and hiking in the mountains. A striking view of the volcan Villarica.

This is a very nice NP for either a multi day hike or just a day hike. The trail is well marked and well maintained. Scenery is diverse, with beautiful forest, look outs, waterfalls and lakes to look at.We went for a day hike (Los Lagos trail) and then had dinner at the Refugio Tinqcuilo (good as well) which is located just before you exit the NP again. This made for a really nice day. Tip: don't stay at the Conaf campsite at the entrance, which is not that nice. There is a private run campsite a couple minutes before the park entrance, down a steep drive way. Beautiful grassy sites right on the lake, one of the most peaceful places we have seen.

This walk in Huerquehue national park was pretty strenuous!! It was mostly uphill but worth the views at the top!
