邻近 Cochamó, Los Lagos (Chile)

This is one of the best walks that one can imagine.
In the hostels of Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas you hear some rumour and some tale about Cochamó, but it is considered as a far and difficult place, where only few dare to venture.
The trail to La Junta is actually a bit harsh, in that for most of it you walk on wet terrain, or actually in the middle of mud and even water. But you are rewarded at the final arrival at La Junta, in the midst of a first-class granite scenery, for which the place is also dubbed as the "Andine Yosemite". You should not be satisfied with La Junta, however: namely, it is only the "base camp" for very rewarding walks to Cerro Arco Iris (the one that I did, and which will be the subject of a neighbouring track of mine) or, on the other side of the valley, to the Cerros Gorilla and Trinidad, the most beloved by climbers.
I was there in late May, that is, in advanced autumn. The refuge at La Junta was closed and the only people whom I met were the family living at the cottage where you register, and some shepherds with horses and sheep.

a 360° showing the valley from above, you get a thorough acquaintance with the region.

Tent place

It would be forbidden to camp at other places than La Junta, but I arrived here with darkness, and I stopped accordingly since it was difficult to push on with the sole aid of the headlamp.

La Ollita

Recommended restaurant, with some rooms. Here I met the poet Flóridor Pérez, who was born in Cochamó, and had been invited by the alcalde for a visit to the local school. He had been long in prison under Pinochet, and his Cartas de Prisonero (Letters of a prisoner) had been a best-seller during the previous months in Chile.
