Patagonia National Park

- High Mountain Ascent
- 13,9 km / 8.6 mi
We will cross a thick forest of ñirres and lengas. We will hike along a ridge with a view of the Chacabuco Valley and the Lake Cochrane basin. The marked summit offers a broad view as far as the northern ice field. It is named after Carlos Oportus, who in 1928 studied the situation and the possibilities for residents of the area. This hill reveals a spectacular part of the amazing Patagonia National Park from the heights.
Extensive forests that connect with lakes and rivers cover this area, dominated by monumental views and infinite open spaces that make it the ideal refuge for the fragile biodiversity of the Patagonian ecosystem.
