Get­ting There and Around

Patagon Journal - - DESTINATIONS -

Conguil­lio Na­tional Park can be ac­cessed to the north via the town of Cu­ra­cautin, which is also a good base for check­ing out other nat­u­ral at­trac­tions in the area like Malalc­ahuello Na­tional Re­serve. But most vis­i­tors to the park go through Melipeuco which is just 12 kms from the main en­trance. The near­est air­port is lo­cated in the city of Te­muco, about 120 kms west. There are reg­u­lar, daily buses from Te­muco to Melipeuco, but get a rental car in­stead as it al­lows bet­ter ease of ac­cess to the park and the sur­round­ing coun­try­side (4-wheel drive is rec­om­mended as many roads in the area are un­paved). If you’d pre­fer a tour to get to know the area, Tur­ismo Aven­tura Ñamku (tur­is­moaven­tu­ramelipeuco@gmail.com) is one of many tour op­er­a­tors which pro­vide trans­porta­tion as part of their pack­ages.
