After picking you up at your hotel this morning, we travel on idyllic country roads to the Reloncaví Fjord, a narrow estuary of the eponymous bay that lies in front of Puerto Montt. We follow its shoreline until reaching the village of Cochamó. Here, the gravel road leads deeper into the mountains, until reaching the trailhead, a former Jesuit path. We walk on a slightly ascending path of low to medium difficulty through untouched forest, along the crystal-clear Cochamó River. After five to six hours, we reach the sector La Junta, where the view opens up to the 400-meter-high granite rocks that frame the valley. We stay here for the next two nights.
Accommodation: Mountain hut in La Junta
