Description

Paso Vuriloche is the gateway to the heart of the Andes Mountain Range.

This time, I want to invite you to a trekking expedition across Paso Vuriloche, the Andean forest and of course, the best glaciers of the region.

They will be 8 amazing days of hike that starts in Pampa Linda, Argentina. During the trip, we will walk among the Valdivian forest, lakes and waterfalls. Our ending point will be in the Chilean lake of Todos los Santos.

If you want to know more about this trekking trip, please find here below the complete itinerary:

DAY 1

Our trail-head will be Pampa Linda, near the border between Argentina and Chile. Once we are in a waterfall called Saltillo de las Nalcas, we’ll hike towards the Manso Glacier. We’ll cross to the Chilean side across the Paso Vuriloche. Our first camp will be set up at Mallin Chileno (1.300 meters high).

Trekking Time: 5 hours

Distance: 15 Km

Altitude gain: 600 m

DAY 2

Today we’ll climb to Mount Tronador hut at 2.200 meters above sea level. We’ll return to Mallin Chileno cabins.

Trekking time: 5 hours

Distance: 10 km

Altitude gain: 900 m

DAY 3

We leave the camp behind in direction to the west. We must hike down across a burned forest that will lead us to the Valdivian one.

After some serious trekking hours we’ll be finally at our camp. We’ll spend the night in a comfortable house of the family Oyarzo. From there, we will enjoy the best views of the Patagonia.

Trekking time: 6 hours

Distance: 10 km

Altitude gain: – 700 m (strong descent)

DAY 4

Across an easy climb we’ll be at La Piedra del Buitre Pass. After that rocky path we continue on a wider road until we arrive to Leti Hot Springs. It’s time for a rest but we must be careful because the hot waters can reach 75 °C! We can also swim in a cold stream or mix both waters in order to obtain the perfect temperature.

Trekking time: 4 hours

Distance: 8 km

Altitude gain: – 250 m

DAY 5

Today we will rest in Termas de Leti.

DAY 6

We’ll start the classic Chilean “horse trail”. It is a valley with muddy paths (specially in rainy days) and lower temperatures.

Trekking time: 7 hours

Distance: 16 km

DAY 7

A similar terrain than the day before with the plus of wading 3 rivers. Four hours later, we will be finally in the Cayutue Lake. We continue walking along the lake until we are in one of its bay, where we’ll rest.

Trekking time: 6 hours

Distance: 15 km

DAY 8

During the last day we will cross the Cayutue River by boat and then, continue hiking up to the final point, the Cayutue Landing on Todos los Santos  Lake.

A last sailing in direction to Petrohue Port to celebrate the end of such an amazing trekking program.

Trekking time: 3 hours

Distance: 8 Km
