Exciting valley, very food for hiking, horse riding or enjoing the small town
gru 2018
We stood in the town overnight and were hiking into the valley. The tail was very used as it was for the horses too. Nevertheless the natur was stunning and the views to the river very good.
There are lots of birds and lots of Bees, so nature is still healthy.

La Junta and the Surroundings
lut 2018 • Pary
We did a cabalgatas (horse trek) in Cochamo with "Cabalgatas Cochamo", an outfit run by Don Ciro and his wife Ida. Don Ciro used to be one of those people who used the route in Cochamo to drive cattle and wagons (if i understood correctly). They now run a BNB in Cochamo while Don Ciro guided us on horse to near La Junta (a ride that takes about 5 hours in total) where he has a hideout. The horses are strong and spirited, and Don Ciro also drove a pack horse for our belongings and other necessities.

From the hideout (which was handmade with dirt floor and a lovely fireplace), we hiked about 6 hours to and from Los Palomas for awesome views (quite an effort to be honest!) In retrospect, We came across rock climbers along the way, as well as lots of streams. Some we had to ford, while others were crossed on fallen tree trunks. There was also a small amount of rock-scaling so you have to be quite fit to do it.

While I am so glad I did it, I had some doubts on the way up! However Don Ciro was very patient and he hardly broke a sweat the entire way.

At his hideout, he was the chef, did lamb churasco for us original style, as well as providing home made bread, donuts, honey and lots of salami and gouda cheese to keep us happy and full.

We slept in a tent, while Don Ciro slept in his hideout with another rider. The trip was 3D2N and we rode back out the same way on the third day, tired but feeling rather accomplished at the end. He does up to a 9D trip which is a circuit instead.

Although we only spent 3 days together, he is such a wonderful guy and really added to the flavour of our trip. Would recommend wholeheartedly to anyone who asks. Just be aware that it is a rather 'roots' arrangement and you need to speak at least some Spanish as Don Ciro and Ida does not speak English.

Beautiful valley, toboganes and mirador
gru 2017 • Znajomi
From Puerto Montt/Varas, we took a bus to Cochamo and asked to be dropped at "La Junta". If you plan to camp, buy all the food you need in Puerto Montt/Varas because there is no food to buy in the valley!!
From the road where the bus drops you, there is 6,5 km to Quila (the first camping and the beginning of the trek in the valley). You can either walk them, pay a lift or hitchhike if you're lucky as we were.
We slept in Quila camping for 5000 pesos, there is no accommodation except a toilet.
The next day we started the trek in the valley to la Junta 11 km, 2,5-3h. There it's also possible to camp. The place is wonderfull ! 10 min walk and a naked foot river crossing from there, there is the famous toboganes. It's beautiful, you can try to slide them. It's not so dangerous if you start from upper left (there's a rope to grab), but be prepared for freezing water haha!!
We also climbed to the mirador cerro Arcoiris. It's a challenging climb with rope climbing at the end. Was funny but stay focused to not fall! View on top amazing!

Run, don't walk! Fjords with granite walls and glaciated peaks at sea level with great seafood. Less than 2 hours from Puerto Varas and worth a couple of nights to hike in and explore.

Nice place to escape
mar 2017 • Pary
We walked to La Junta campground (13km) and stayed here 2 nights. On our second day we walked to Arco Iris which was a mission but worth the view. The waterfalls are close by, and the river is nice for a fresh/cold dip.
There are lots of options for trekking and rock climbing. A great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle.

Note- you will need to reserve campgrounds in advance, and camping is unavailable from mid March until spring. There is no freedom camping, but it costs $5,000 CLP per person. There are also cabins/Refugios available to rent as well.

well worth the hike through mud!
lis 2016 • Pary
The hike from the Cochamo bridge up through the valley can be tough, muddy, but surely amazing! The views that you get when arriving at la Junta are splendid (approx. 4 - 5 hours from the start of he trail). From la Junta you can do various hikes that will get you on top of some of these super rocks. I highly recommend staying at least one full day in la Junta to do some hiking in the surroundings. Unfortunately, we only spend one night at la Junta and the next day did our trek back to Cochamo; so no hiking in the surroundings for us. Campo Aventura's mountain lodge is highly recommended for spending the night in La Junta (great service); I believe camping is also possible in la Junta.

Hiking, Climbing, Cable-Cars & Natural WaterSlides! Go there.
lut 2016 • Znajomi
From incredible domes (constantly being developed for climbing) to dense jungle and acrobatic hikes, Cochamo Valle has it all. The hike in is a challenge in itself (especially if it rains), think 10k of endless tunnels of mud. Fun! And once there the hikes and natural waterslides will blow your mind! Make sure to bring tons of adventurous spirit!

Impressive place for visiting
lut 2016 • Znajomi
I think Valle Cochamo is one of the most beautiful place I have ever been. If you like open door sports such as trekking, climbing, kayak, rafting, horse hiding or even just stay in nature contemplation, you are going to the right place.
