Chile, which I met on a trip I made a few years ago, is undoubtedly a country that, besides having an exuberant nature, also has a hospitable people and that particularly likes Brazilians. It's the kind of country you always think about: one day I want to go back there. However, there are some exceptional places, which I haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet, but research is still a way to get to know places, never navigated before. So let's get to know them together, say, in a way unusual.
The Chilean region is a pleasant surprise, from Valparaíso to Patagonia, deserts, forests, mountains, waterfalls, geysers and lakes, with an immense diversity, with emphasis on the natural pools, with plenty of fresh water for those who like to practice sports or just dive in. In this region we find fantastic marble caves, natural formations in the middle of one of the lakes where we will go “travel“.
1 - El Tatio Geyser
It is the largest geyser field in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest in the world is in Chile. El Tatio, which means O grandfather, is an elevation field with an altitude of 4,200 meters, within the Andes. And, it was a privilege that I had when I saw her from inside the plane where she was traveling, thanks to the skill of the commander who managed to get close enough to feel that delicious “chill” of adventure, in the belly. Impressive columns of steam and warm waters.
2 - Laja Waterfall
Located in the Bio Bio region, it was once a place of worship for the Araucans. It can be accessed on foot, consisting of four falls, including the highest point, with a height of 35 meters. In addition to the pleasure of swimming, horseback riding, hiking and rafting (down the rapids) can be done.
3 - Los Molles
The place is ideal for lovers of fishing and diving. Los Molles, is located in the Valparaíso region, 187 kilometers from the capital. It is a preservation area, keeping animals protected, especially those threatened with extinction, which can be seen by visitors.
4 - Embase El Yeso
It is a reservoir in the Andes, metropolitan region of Santiago, has a capacity of 250 million m³, being one of the main sources of drinking water for the metropolis. Cold waters are widely used for fishing and windsurfing.
5 - Lake Carrera (Marble Caves)
The incredible Chilean marble caves are located in a place called Bem. The lake General Carrera has 200 water, with a surface area of 978 square kilometers, in the Patagonia region, next to neighboring Argentina.
6 - Villarrica Lake
In the summer time, the place is literally taken by sailing, kayaking and water skiing. The lake, 25 kilometers long, is close to the town of Pucon, Villarrica, and the Villarrica volcano.
7 - Bahia Inglesa
The coast, even isolated, impresses by the contrast between the turquoise blue water, the white sand and the black rocks, all surrounded by an extensive desert, 5 kilometers from Caldera. If you are one of those who, even dazzled by this scenario that resembles a cinema scenario, depending on the chosen beach, you can fish, windsurf, kite surf and sail. There are plenty of options.
8 - Los Ojos del Salar
Literally, two "eyes" in the middle of the salt desert and that form freshwater lakes with a round shape that are so perfect, they seem to have been drawn by hand. Located 32 km from San Pedro de Atacama, you can also stroll through two other lakes: Laguna de Cejar and Laguna Tebenquiche.
9 - Lake Nordenskjold
At first glance, the name suggests that the place is located in Iceland, but it is a Chilean lake and is located within the magnificent Torres Del Paine National Park, in southern Chile. The enchantment of the place is not limited only to the stunning landscape, walking the visitor may be pleasantly surprised when faced with fauna and flora and still see its colorful and charming waters up close.
10 - Llanquihue Lake
It is the second largest lake in Chile and is in an area of 860 square kilometers, surrounded by beaches that are very popular for picnics, campsites and water sports.
Now, let us use our imagination to “travel” through the beautiful and charming little-known paradises of Chile and to serve as a stimulus to reach them, in the not too distant future. Have a nice trip for all of us who love to enjoy one of the best sides of life.
See you next time #Nature with the continuation!
