¿Qué es y qué hacer en Cochamó?

Muchos de los visitantes a Cochamó llegan para conocer y disfrutar el Valle Cochamó. Allí, se alzan imponentes los cerros de granito en ambos lados del zigzagueante y cristalino Río Cochamó que va alimentándose de muchos afluentes, uno de ellos el Río La Junta que le da su nombre al sector más popular del valle. Múltiples cascadas se asoman entre el bosque nativo que alberga los antiguos alerces de hasta 3.000 años. En una verde pampa que se abre entre el bosque resaltan coloridas carpas, los techos de los fogones y los amantes de la naturaleza que admiran uno de los más bellos paisajes que han visto. 

With no roads and only trails penetrating the valley, Cochamó Valley has become a trekker's paradise, climber's mecca and nature-lover's haven with no park fees, no cars and surrounded by granite walls, waterfalls and undisturbed native forest. It's a place to escape the traffic-ridden roads and enter an area of enormous natural beauty.
