Tamango Reserve and Chacabuco Valley
You´ll start by driving 70 km south on the Austral Highway to the town of Cochrane, population 3,000. You´ll then continue to the Tamango National Reserve, the only area where you can observe the huemul (a protected species here). After a hike through the park´s abundant vegetation and fauna, on the shores of beautiful river Cochrane, you´ll enjoy a satisfying lunch in these spectacular surroundings. On the way back to Mallin Colorado, you´ll visit the Chacabuco Valley area, a landscape very similar to the Patagonian pampas of Argentina. Here you can observe guanacos, condors, sheep, cattle and diverse bird species.
