Alerce Andino National Park Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful.place to hike, see nature, birding.
Nice walk from the park entrance (near Lenca) to the waterfalls and Alerce tree.
Beautiful place. You can appreciate all the native trees of Los lagos región. If you are lucky you will see foxes, birds, frogs, and if you are more lucky who knows you will see a Puma. Remember that you can go to the park through the entrance of Lenca, chaica or through the entrance in Correntoso.
Possibly the best national park I've visited in Chile and easy to get to by bus from Puerto Montt. I highly recommend leaving as early as possible though keep in mind the park does not open till 9am. You can take a small bus to Lenca from the bus terminal in Puerto Montt and get off in Chaica, which is just after the Lenca stops. At the bus stop there are numbers you can call to get a ride up the 7km dirt road to the park. I recommend using the one listed as "Uber Andino" which is a woman by the name of Angélica who has a truck capable of transporting up to maybe 8 people at a time. You pay in advance for transportation to and from the park. The hike to the falls and the ancient larch tree is relatively easy but to go further requires a more strenuous climb. To reach the lakes you will need to cross a stream that has no bridge, which is not a problem in the dry season (Jan-Feb) but could be dangerous in wetter times of the year. The trail from the first lake to Lago Triángulo is not well maintained but usually passable even if the park personnel say otherwise. If you have the time and skill to reach this upper lake you will be rewarded with an incredible landscape and a perfect place to go for a quick swim. Excellent birdwatching to be had throughout the park and the chance to see or at least hear la rana de Darwin, a tiny tree frog native to the region. A perfect day hike but if you have 3 days and backpacking gear, check out a similar hike in the Vale de Cochamó.
Lovely place, I had a guided walk lots of birds, waterfalls and a very old Larch tree
