Puerto Montt is surrounded by lakes and volcanos in an area referred to as the Chilean Lake District. Chile is also said to have 3000 volcanos, and there always seems to be at least one in eruption. We were in close vicinity to three volcanos - sometimes we could see all three at once. The day was beautiful; lucky for us, as the area gets 200 days of rain per year.

The most striking (and best seen) was Volcan Orosono.


Here it is again.


We went to Parque Nacional Vicente Pérez Rosales, principally known for what some call its waterfalls, others its rapids (what the Parque has is a penumbral case).


Back to Puerto Montt.
