It's not a national park, it is a sactuary and that makes a different trip than Huerquehue. It's shorter but steeper and the initial trial is very hard, imposible if raining. Watch out. But if you manage to survive the first part of it, then...More

The path is EXTREMELY steep at the start that I almost gave up. After the refugio, I actually got lost so I turned back. The path is not well-marked so be-careful. Also, there are cows and goats that may block your path. Just walk, they...More

We came here on a Saturday after taking a combination of both a bus and hitchhiking (you can normally take a bus straight to the entrance). The entrance to El Cañi reserve costs 4,000 pesos per person, but we somehow didn't pay as we came...More

Tough first 3/4 hrs, but the final lookpoint had one of the best views I've ever seen in my entire life. Try to go on a clear day or when there are high clouds so you can see all the volcanoes. Very beautiful old forests...More
