These natural falls are stunning... By car, it’s a beautiful drive from Puerto Varas along Lake Llanquihue... maybe half an hour. Once you arrive, you enter through the gift shops and can immediately hear the sound of the falls gushing through the rocks. The entrance...More

Fantastic waterfall and short walks for a reasonable priced. Having read previous reviews not sure why anyone would call this place underwhelming, it is beautiful

If the weather is clear it should not be missed because of the wide waterfalls and the volcanos in the background.

The Waterfalls at Petrohue are truly wonderful but, for me, the continuous notices, marked paths and barriers rather detract from the natural beauty of the place. I would have like to have wandered about a bit more and to be trusted not to fall or...More
