    Ventisquero Colgante trek

    January 11, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We reached the pickup place at 8 am as jad been planned. The van wasn't there yet so we went to the supermarket nearby and bought some food stuff for our breakfast and for the lunch as well. We left Puyuhuapi at 8 am and reached the Queulat National Park around 11 am. We paid the entry fee of 5000 CLP per person and were dropped off at the parking place at around 11:20 am and the driver told us that he would come to pick us up at 2:30 pm. We protested since we wanted to do all the treks in the park, to which he said that 3 hours were more than sufficient for all and that he would leave if we weren't back by 3 pm.
    We decided to follow the treks 1, 2, 3 and 4 in that order. The 1st one was a 3.3 km trek uphill to the Colgante glacier. Just a few meters into the trek, we were able to see the glacier face far off in the distance. We crossed the wooden swinging bridge across the Rio Ventisquero and stated on the uphill trek.
