The remains of an ancient volcano are the closest neighbor of Osorno Volcano. A sedimentary mountain with steep ravines. It was named by the Mapuches as “Caulle” (Seagull) and is commonly known as “La Picada”. It is housed in the northwest end of “Todos Los Santos” lake, in the heart of the Vicente Perez Rosales National Park
The route allows us to enter the oldest national park in Chile. With a landscape of Patagonian airs, the trekking will give us wonderful views of the Northeast and East faces of the Osorno volcano, the West face of the La Picada hill, in addition to allowing us to explore the “Desolación Pass” and its incredible views of the lakes Todos Los Santos, Rupanco, and Llanquihue.
The route is a semi-circuit that will take us to travel around 14 kilometers and about 800 meters in positive slope (and 710 meters in descent). Without a doubt, the best months to enjoy this route are between November and April, when there are more sunny days and less snow on the route, but in winter the snow makes it a real adventure!
