Conguillío National Park is located in the Araucania region and could have one of the closest resemblances to the era when dinosaurs roamed the world. Its ancient araucarias (monkey puzzle trees) and coigües, and its magnificent lakes and lagoons stir up your imagination and transport you to the age of giants. Above it, all stands the mighty Llaima Volcano. With its 3,127 meters and with the last major eruption in 2008, it is one of the most active volcanoes in South America. The breathtaking natural beauty of this volcano, the national park where it stands, and the rich biodiversity that surrounds it have been displayed in countless documentaries. During this one-day expedition to the summit of the Llaima Volcano, the Conguillío National Park’s highest point, you will be able to experience these breathtaking landscapes first-hand.

Itinerary

Our adventure will begin at 04:30 am when we will check the equipment and meteorological conditions one last time before starting our drive to the Conguillío National Park. We will pass through the town of Cherquenco and arrive at the base of the volcano near the Las Araucarias ski center, located at 1,550 MASL.

There, we will begin the hike first passing through the contour of the ski station and coming out onto the extensive plateau. Crossing this plateau with the panoramic view of Llaima Volcano in front of us will bring us closer to the main cone of the volcano. We will then head towards what is known as the “gate”, where we will be able to enjoy incredible views of the neighboring volcanoes, as well as the steep slopes of the final sections of Llaima. A long, reenergizing break will allow us to confront a slope of up to 35°, which will lead us to the famous “tea kettle” sector, whose large fumaroles we will circle with great caution.

The final section of the volcano is made up of large terraces and ice balls that finally bring us to the summit of Llaima, where incredible views of the Conguillío National Park will await us.

The descent will be along the same route or may vary according to the conditions of the terrain.
