Parque Nacional Queulat and around


With stunning, rugged scenery and its namesake hanging glacier, PARQUE NACIONAL QUEULAT is one of the region’s biggest attractions. Located south of La Junta, it features a vast expanse of virgin forest, towering granite peaks and rumbling glaciers, and is divided into three sectors. The Carretera Austral enters the park’s northern boundary 15km north of the village of Puyuhuapi and crosses its southern limit 55km further south, just beyond the Portezuelo de Queulat pass.
