Day 2: Temuco - Conguillio National Park

This morning, following breakfast, we head off towards Melipeuco until we get to the gateway of the National Park Conguillío.

The highlights of this wild protected area are the impressive araucaria tree forests, which are considered a living fossil (Araucaria araucana), and the most active volcano in Chile, the Llaima Volcano (3125 mts / 10.253 feet).

There, we begin pedaling along a slightly steep path up to the park’s main entrance situated by the beautiful Truful Truful waterfall, overlooking a striking view of the Llaima Volcano. We’ll ride alongside vast lava fields and then through ancient forests of Nothofagus and araucarias, reaching an altitude of 1.650 meters above sea level (5.413 feet).

The landscape of the Park is characterized by the Sierra Nevada Range, the lakes, and the active volcano Llaima, with its extensive lava flows that formed a huge moon-like valley.

We’ll ride across the whole park from south to north, until arriving to the lake Captrén and the exit of the park, where we meet our vehicle.
