Travel Blogs from Puerto Varas
... The last 100 metres had been up steep loose scree. The crater is a little odd as it has a large steaming cone of volcanic material in its centre. Around this are several lakes and a lot of, what looks like, mud. All around one side of the volcano is the evidence of the damage done by the pyroclastic flow, the clouds of ash and the lahar. There are thousands of dead trees, most knocked over or raggedly broken from the blast. From the crater you can see the route the lahar took ...

It was a 12 hour bus and ferry trip with several stops on the way and was about 5 times as expensive as a normal 6 hour bus. Well, we've been very happy and kinda thought that we're only here once in our lifes, so we should take ...
