Day 3 was hot springs day. Yep. That's all we did. The funniest thing about hot springs is it shows you how tiring relaxation can be. Afterward you just want to go to sleep. So, we had pasta and did just that. Day well spent.

The Villarica volcano was an early start, I was at Pucon summit (the travel agency) at 6.45 layering on my waterproofs and picking my rucksack with yet more. We drove for an hour to the start point and though we'd been told yesterday that getting to chair lift up to the snows edge (instead of an additional hours hike) was optional it was quickly made clear ...
