We only stayed a few days... as we had decided to stop off and stay a few days before finishing our journey back home to Santiago. Some highlights for us were heading up onto Osorno Volcano to enjoy in the views, volcanic flows,
Taking in an excellent high ropes course with a hair raising exit
Swimming in the VERY cold and massive Llanquihue Lake, one of South America's largest, and I think the coldest...
Munching on Kuchen (German Cake), a local favorite brought from the early German settlers to the area... the town actually looks like a small European town that could be found in Germany or within the Alps...
Getting a few close-up views of the local zorros (fox)
Tromping around a series of waterfalls,
Hanging out in our little cabin by the lake...
Finding a Kundalini chef at a local sandwich shop who cooked up some amazing Indian food...
Breathing in the clean and natural air before our long drive back to Santiago.
The area around Purto Varas is vast and wild... very wild... and we decided that we would like to return in the future and head deeper into the mountain forests to enjoy more of this stunning area.
