TREKKING CONGUILLIO NATIONAL PARK
This huge park has 60.832 hectares, in the IX region, its average height is 900 to 3125 mts above sea level and it was created in 1950. Inside the park LLaima and Sierra Nevada volcanoes give origin to the two main valleys: Captrèn river toward Curacautìn and Quitralelfú river toward Melipeuco.
Due to the eruption of the LLaima volcano, the Conguillio lake and Captrèn , Arco iris and Verde lagoons were formed inside the valleys.
The lagoons were recently formed which is shown by the forests that gradually sank into a deep depression 100 to 600 years ago, when the level of waters raised. The landscape is practically virgin and their 600 to 1200 years old monkey puzzle pines , oaks, raulies, coigues and cypresses confirm that fact. All this forest is spread among springs, slap heaps and last eruptions`s lava. There`s a big slap heap at the entrance to the valley lined with the volcano to the right side, and a monkey puzzle pines forest to the left. The roads leads you to the Control Post that gives general information on the National Park at klm 34.
