In total it was about 12km with a 600m altitude gain (and loss) through fabulous beech, pine and Araucaria (Monkey Puzzle) forest visiting three beautiful lakes – Chico (small), Verde (green) and Toro (bull). There were plenty of wildflowers out but a disappointing number of birds. At the half way mark we found a great log to be our picnic ...

Everything happened out of Pucón. That really dampened our spirits and we just wrote the day off as a chance to walk around the town and parts of Lago Villarrica. At least the weather was pleasant and we had a nice view of Lago Villarrica and were able to see Volcán Villarrica briefly (when not covered in ...
