Patagonia Nationwide Park was introduced January 2018 as a part of the improbable new Route of Parks (Ruta de los Parques) chain of 17 nationwide parks in Chile.
Three conservation areas had been mixed to create it. Cows and different grazing animals eliminated. Native wildlife resembling guanacos, ñandús, pumas, Andean condors, and huemuls reintroduced.
Patagonia Nationwide Park will quickly be the perfect mountaineering vacation spot on the Carretera Austral after close by Cerro Castillo. You must hike each on the identical journey.
There are already plenty of prime quality day hikes out of three established campgrounds in Patagonia Nationwide Park together with:
La Confluencia three km (2 miles)
La Vega Path 7 km (Four.5 miles)
Lago Chico Loop 12 km (7.5 miles)
Avilés Loop Path 16 km (10 miles)
Lagunas Altas Path 23 km (14 miles) climbing Mt. Tamanguito
Furioso Path 23 km (14 miles)
I’m MORE enthusiastic about future lengthy hikes traversing the park.
The Park has one in a single day hike referred to as the Aviles to Jeinimeni path 50 km (31 miles) a technique.
As of February 2019 there isn’t a hiker shuttle to and from the trailheads. You must manage that by yourself. ☹️ It’s a trouble.
