Natural landmarks in the Aysen region Chile, that we managed to see for our 10 day trip to this part of the country. The best option is in January and February, when it is a hot summer in this part of the world. Of course it's never so hot here because the climate is oceanic. As the Aysen region is in the southernmost part of Chile, winter comes earlier.
Temperatures rarely fall below zero because the two largest cities in the area are located between high mountains. The capital is Coyhaique, near the border with Argentina. The Aysen region was inhabited in the early 20th century and is far from hiking trails. I can even say that it is unknown. Nature is uniquely beautiful and the people living here have not polluted it.
Their main problem is winter, when households are heated with wood. Because the towns of Aysen and Coyhaique are located in a valley surrounded by mountains, the smoke cannot be moved by the wind. A sharp suffocating odor is obtained and the level of fine dust particles is high. What you can see in the Aysen region Nature is very similar to me in Norway. There are fjords, mountain lakes, mountains and pampas. Tourism is underdeveloped, which I have already explained above.
These are our stops in the Aysen region, where we took beautiful panoramic photos and naturally fished. There are many trout in the fast waters of the rivers, fished. There are no big hotels and most of the accommodation is in bungalows and barracks with all the amenities for unpretentious visitors.
I told you about this end. But it is so vast and beautiful that I will post photos from this trip. Moreover, the friend we went to is an avid fisherman, knows the area like the fingers of his hand and has a boat. So we wandered on dirt roads, hidden, secret places, private terrain, where even the locals do not go, and tourists do not even know they exist.
Lake General Carrera is located in Patagonia and is divided into almost two equal parts between Chile and Argentina. It has a glacial character, the water is blue, which is common for a lake in the Andes. Lake La Paloma, very beautiful and when we realized that it was artificially created, we were very surprised because we did not see a dam wall anywhere. In the summer it is used both for recreation of the local population and by people living in nearby towns.
Lake Pollux near the towns of Aisen and Coyhaique. In summer it is used for resting and fishing for brown trout, and due to the low temperatures in winter it freezes. Rio Nireguao flows through the city of Aysen, but we passed through the upper reaches near the border with Argentina. The river is not large, but more interesting is that around it there are many charismatic places for photos and views, as well as rock formations. Some of them took the form of humans and animals. In the plain around the river there are very good conditions for raising livestock.
Puerto Ibanez Falls you've probably never heard of, but we found it and took pictures. They are a whole cascade of waterfalls, but they are relatively low. They are far apart and difficult to photograph at the same time. After all, this is only a small part of the sights in Chile, as the country is over five thousand kilometers long. It is very difficult to drive around unless you have a lot of free time and money.
On the other hand, if you use an airplane, you will not feel the fabulous nature of this part of the Earth. Living conditions are not very good, so the population here is small.
