South America is very interesting and have been increasingly popular among tourists Today we travel to Chile, luring tourists for its nature. The Andes mountains featur extinct volcanoes which make beautiful mountain range. Add to that azure sky and lagoons and you get amazing vista. You will love to take on your boot, a bagpack and clean your mind in nature. Chilean Nature Park are amazing to take hikes in. If you love busy and noisy cities, no problem. Get back to civilization and talk to the locals.

Santiago is the capital of Chile. It is the first stop on our three-week long vacation. The city is surrounded by the mountains. About 6 milion people live there. The journey there is quite long (it took us about 14 hours). You won't regret it, however.
Villarrica town was the next place on our travel itineary. First we were not sure if to stay at Pucon, a town 25 kilometers further away which is also one of the msot popular places in Chile. Locals made the best use possible of the location of this town. Pucon is situated by Lago Villarrica. National parks, thermal springs and wild river surround this town. Last but not least, there is Villarrica volcano which close to this town and also its greatest attraction.
Valparaíso dubbed Valpo is a city situated in central Chile. It is known for colorful houses. Moreover, there is one of the largest and most important ports in the country.
Puerto Varas was another stop on our journey along Chile. It is as popular as the town of Pucón. Puerto Varas is very well maintained. There are many stores selling sporting clothes and sporting goods. We crossed the main street and reached Lago Llanquihue. The vistas are impressive from here. We even spotted two volcanoes – Osorno and Calbuco. Osorno volcano rises above water. It is of a perfect shape.
We conclude our journey across Carretera Austral at the town of Coyhaique. We leave Puerto Aysén and enjoy amazing nature with amazing vistas. The Río Simpson river is our company for almost the entire journey. By the way, the rivers flows across Reserva Nacional Río Simpson nature reserve.
