Multi Day Exploration - Conguillo NP, Araucania, Chile

Back to Map 

Visited: Mid Dec

This relatively small national park packs in a remarkable number of interesting features. As well as being the home of the Monkey Puzzle tree, it also has soaring volcanoes, black sand beaches and bare lava flows. There is plenty of very challenging trekking here, to explore the relatively undeveloped park.
