Chilling in the middle of the nature
Located in the Chilean Lake District, Pucon is a small town which offers beautiful landscapes and chill, laid-back atmosphere. It is mostly famous for the Villarrica volcano which looms majestically over the city at more than 2800 m, always covered with snow. It is one of the most active volcanoes in Chile, sometimes throwing out smoke. We even saw its lava one night…a big red ball in the dark: scary, but super cool!
The weather was not too good during our stay so except from chilling, playing with the dogs in the hostel and walking around the center we did not do much.
We rent a car one day and went on a tour of the area to discover the Huerquehue National Park: nice waterfalls (one almost comparable to the ones in Laos), beautiful lakes and forest! But what impressed us most was the half green – half snow mountains. So cool! It was the first time we touched the snow since January! We were missing the feeling.
