At the trailhead there is a small parking lot, restrooms and an information booth. The path follows the Chaica river and the trail is surrounded by abundant vegetation, it is well maintained and well marked. In areas where there is a lot of humidity and some rocks, there are wooden walkways that facilitate transit. Finally, you will arrive at the Salto, which is a quite powerful waterfall that will amaze you. This is a very pleasant short hike inside the Alerce Andino Park.

A visit to these two beautiful lagoons inside the Alerce Andino National Park, whose views between larch forests and mountains will take your breath away. The trail from the entrance of the Park is well signposted and maintained, it even has wooden decks that makes transit in areas of mud and rocks easier. It is not a very difficult hike and you can find fauna such as pudú (a kind of deer from the Andean forests), puma, little monkey, condor, black woodpecker, among others. Keep in mind that although the park is open all year round, in winter time the trail is enabled only to the Chaiquenes lagoon.Show more
