Huerquehue and El Cañi

While in Pucon we went on several hikes.

Sanutario El Cañi is a sanctuary about 20 minutes outside of Pucon filled with Monkey Puzzle (Auracaria araucana) trees. It’s a straight 2 hours hike up to a hidden lake. About half way you encounter a hut, complete with fire pit and sleeping platforms for overnight stays in the sanctuary.

Huerquehue is a much larger park about an hour outside of Pucon. We did the three lakes hike, but there is a lot of land to explore here as well as possible camping spots (both car camping and hike in).
