However, they are not the only ones. Farther ahead towards the lake, turning left at El Cristo, San Sebastián Carhuello Chapel can be seen and Bellavista and Los Copihues falls appear immediately after. Paths framed by exuberant vegetation lead to two spectacular falls and hidden pools reflecting the many hues of green around them.
We continued along the road to the lake until the meeting of two slow flowing rivers, forming little islands. It is the location of La Puntilla campsite. A little farther we were again surprised by the beauty of Carhuello and Carileufu falls. There is a choice of guesthouses in this amazing natural setting.
People flock to the area in summer and unfortunately, can be careless. It is important to keep in mind that we must respect nature if we are to continue enjoying it.
