    Over the Queulat Pass

    January 12 in Chile

    It rained on and off and we were happy we were in the cabin, particularly after the Queulat National Park when the road started climbing in the mountains and it started getting very cloudy and rainy. We passed the Queulat pass at 500 meters above sea level around 4:30 pm. It was quite cloudy on the other side of the pass and a steady rain continued all the while.

    Drop off at Puerto Cisnes

    January 12 in Chile

    After the pass, we stopped a while at one of the waterfalls flowing down the mountain side. The geologist dropped us at the junction of Puerto Cisnes road where his assistant was waiting to be picked up. It was raining quite heavily now but luckily, there was a bus shelter nearby. We dropped our bags in the shelter and waited a while for the rain to subside.

    Puerto Cisnes junction

    January 12 in Chile

    At the junction where we were dropped, there was a hotdog kiosk selling warm hotdogs and coffee/tea. We left our bags at the bus shelter and ran to the kiosk to order some food. It seemed to be a very popular place. Every vehicle passing by on the main road or to the port stopped by for a quick bite. There were a lot of bikers stopping by as well. Around 5:15 pm, we were done with the food and the rain too had stopped so we crossed the road and stood waiting for a lift further.Read more

  • Day6

    The Carretera Austral (Ruta 7) starts in Puerto Montt and goes southwards to Villa O'Higgins, small town in the very south of Chile.

    I took the first bit of the Carretera Austral passing Chaitén, La Junta, Coyhaique, Puerto Ibáñez crossing the huge Lago General Carrera to Chile Chico.

    The inaccesible Carretera Austral passes national parks, goes through fjords, passes beautiful old trees, sparkling rivers and dolphins in the Pacific.

    Taking the bus here actually means to take a bus, drive an hour, hop on a boat for two more hours, go back on the road ... and so on. There is water everywhere. And sometimes the 240 kilometres to your next stop take more than ten hours.

    Take your time - lots of time - for the beautiful landscapes of the Carretera Austral and its beautiful people.

    And don't loose faith. In this sparsely inhabitated area buses are not frequent and just the important bits are paved. The timetable changes constantly and maybe you've got to wait a couple of days for the next bus or you've got to sleep somewhere cause the minibuses don't drive by night or you even have to find out by asking around the phone number of a private minibus driver taking the route... or buses which should leave at 5am leave at 4:30 instead.

    Between Chilo Chico and Los Antiguos in Argentina there is even no bus service, due to tax issues. You have to walk or hitchhike the border crossing.

    Another big adventure in this part of the world... money withdrawel...
