    Nationalpark Huerquehue

    April 12 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Als wir nach 9 Stunden Schlaf aufwachten, war der Himmel grau und wir total unmotiviert aufzustehen. Nach einer halben Stunde im warmen Bett kuschelnd rafften wir uns doch noch auf, zogen uns warm an und saßen um 8:30 Uhr im Bus zum Nationalpark Huerquehue. Im Bus trafen wir Marta wieder. Nach ca. 50 min Fahrt waren wir am Parkeingang und auch die Sonne zeigte sich so langsam wieder. Wir hatten bis um 14:10 Uhr Zeit, da wir dann den Bus zurück nach Pucon erwischen mussten. Heute wollten wir noch nach Valdivia fahren und die letzte Verbindung fuhr bereis um 16:20 Uhr.

    Wir wanderten vier Stunden durch die Wälder, sahen zwei schöne Wasserfälle und erreichten als letztes Ziel eine Plattform, von der aus wir einen letzten herrlichen Blick auf einen See hatten. Im Hintergrund war wieder mal der Vulkan Villarrica zu sehen. Wir standen da und konnten es nicht glauben, dass wir gestern auf dem Krater standen.
    Gemütlich liefen wir wieder zurück und erreichten ohne Probleme unseren Bus.

    Als wir in den Bus nach Valdivia einstiegen fing es an zu regnen und wir freuten uns wie viel Glück wir dauernd auf unserer Reise haben. Schon gestern hatten uns die Guides gesagt, dass es für sie vermutlich der letzte Aufstieg auf den Vulkan in dieser Saison war.

    San Sebastian

    February 12, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    After day of relax on the beach we had another hike ahead of us. We had to register at CONAF where we got stuck in with other people and lost some time.
    On my after that we were ready for the hike. The information where different at CONAF and so it should be anything between 8-10 km one way and about 1100 m of elevation.
    The initial part was just really long zig-zag hike up the hill. After that we got to a meadow that showed us first glimpse of where we are heading and the magnificent volcano Villarica.
    The next part was through a forest that showed us couple of nice views on the other side of the valley and where we had the "pleasure" to come face to face with the really huge tarantula. We have never seen one on real life so it really scared me when I found it standing on the path ahead of me. Shame we didn't take a picture before Petr moved it very slightly to the side so I can ran past.
    That scared me enough so for the next kilometre or so I mainly focused where I was stepping.
    Once we got out of the forest, really beautiful views opened ahead of us. There was couple of fake peaks that offered plenty of opportunities for pictures before we arrived to final peak.
    From here we had stunning 360° view of the Chile with glimpse of Argentina as well. We counted 6 lagoons or lakes and 8 different volcanos with Villarica and Pumalín being the biggest ones.
    We sat down for a lunch on the sunshine as the sky was absolutely cloudless.
    As we were running low on water and the heat was getting stronger, we decided to head back to the camp and go for a quick swim in a lake.

    Parque Nacional Huerquehue

    February 10, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    As it was quite early when we got everything done on camp and the weather was nice but not too hot, we diced to head straight for the first hike around five lagoons in the park.
    As it's more accessible, there was quite few families with children and generally quite a lot of people.
    We even met 12 Czech people on their holiday with a tour company. They started the tour much earlier so we met them on their way back. We exchanged few words and headed further.
    There are two waterfalls from the beginning of the trail and once we got higher, we have discovered our new favorite tree :) monkey puzzle tree!
    In the nature they grown absolutely huge and are really magnificent on their presence. We have taken so many pictures but it still did not compare to seeing them live.

    Journey to the Parque Nacional Huerquehu

    February 10, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    After another bad night sleep we had an early morning so we can catch an early bus to the national park.
    The weather looked much better then those two days before and it was nice promise of great couple of days in the nature.
    We slept pretty much whole journey in the bus. After paying CONAF another 5 000 CLP for entrance we walked two kilometre to the camping where we will stay for three nights.
    The first where we have booked was really chaotic and Not really organised. So we walked to the Camp Olga where we emailed as well. Turned out, we had a reservation here as well and the spot was ready.
    We picked up our backpacks and moved to the camp that has it's own beautiful beach by the lake.
