Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed this hike. Great views and not to hard. Nice views. Go whether cloudy or sunny, weather changes so fast.

Please check out the January 29, 2017 review. It has excellent information about this hike.

Since 2017, they have made several changes. Many of the old orange poles are still in place. Red/white posts have been added for the first 4 km, which is on private land. The next 3 km are in National Reserve. At this point, the signs are yellow. Some of the old trail is now off limits. A much better trail has been built with stairs in certain places, one rope section and several direction signs. People used to get lost on the old trail - not any more.

When starting this hike, you need to understand that it involves 7 km each way plus 1,000 m of elevation gain. It is not for everyone. You are rewarded with outstanding views in all directions. I have hiked for many years and in several countries. This hike is definitely on my all-time top 25 list.

The suggested time is 7-8 hours. I am 65 but very fit. My time to the mirador was 2:39 and my return time was 1:54. I was feeling quite strong today. Everyone's time will be different. Take lots of water (I drank 2 liters), use liberal amounts of sun screen and take bug repellent. There are 2 places to refill your water bottles, but only 1 was acceptable today and was not far from the mirador.

The officials will not let you start this hike after a certain time. They also want you to return from the top at a set time. I recommend starting this hike no later than 12:00. For the best photos, I recommend starting about 9:00. At the mirador, I recommend walking 5 minutes higher to get better photos.

Enjoy.

The scenery is absolutely stunning and not less impressive than el chalten in Argentina. However it's quite pricy and for an entrance of about USD30 you would expect better mainainted trails.

We backpacked up the 1000 m elevation gain/2.2 mile incline to Camp New Zealand for an overnight. Stunning, varying terrain was a challenge but the pay off was amazing. Spring did not disappoint with delicate wildflowers, mushrooms, birds - waterfalls, rising rivulets, gusts, hail, sun, rain. Super exhilarating must do. Try to check the forecast but realize it's wild out there.

The Conaf take care of this park. For the entrance you have to pay approx $ 10.000 chilean pesos. In the park are differents options of trekkings, some are for one day and others are for more depending what you wanna visit. If you want a do trekkings for more than one day you have to camping because there are any more accommodations. The camping are marked on a map that they give you in the entrance and also you should know that in the camping are nothing so you have to be prepared. there is not toilets no kitchen and water
just from the rivers.

We drove to Lago General Carrera through this park. The views are amazing. Sharp mountain peaks, edged with snow, fast running streams and photo opportunities everywhere. Half the journey is by dirt road and there was only one petrol station, so make sure to fill up before you leave. There are roadworks every so often involving graders and road rollers which are maintaining the road. It takes much longer to travel than you expect, but it’s worth it.

A must near Coyhaique. It takes a little more than 1 our to get there from Coyhaique. Te road is quite good and the landscape is wonderful, so is better to travel with time to stop and take pictures.
At Cerro Castillo village you can find facilities to have lunch or eat something, however there is not gas station so I recommend leave Coyhaique with the car full of gasoline.
***********
Un paseo imperdible, al cual se accede por un camino casi entero pavimentado desde Coyhaique. Demora poco más de 1 hr pero es mejor ir con tiempo para tomar fotografías en el camino, ya que la ruta es muy linda.
En villa cerro castillo hay un pequeño poblado donde eventualmente se puede comer algo, sin embargo no hay bencineras por lo que vayan cargados desde Coyhaique.

Departing from Coyhaique, Chile, our Wilderness Travel group van traveled south on the famous Carretera Austral (Southern Way), which is Chile’s Route 7 that runs 770 miles from Puerto Montt to Villa O’Higgins and travels through 17 National Parks and Reserves. We were on our way to visit and hike the spectacular Parque Patagonia near Cochrane along the Rios Baker and Chacabucco, a soon to be a new Chilean National Park.

Our trip down Route 7 took us through the beautiful Reserva Nacional Cerro Castillo and it is visually stunning. This was not our destination and we didn’t hike here but I wanted to. Maybe another trip is needed to do exactly that?

Even if you don’t step outside your vehicle, the drive alone is worth it. The road is paved all the way down to the small town of Villa Cerro Castillo but after that it is dirt and gravel all the way south once it crosses the Rio Ibanez.

We drove through on our way to Marble caves on a beautiful clear day. We also got to see two Huemules- the male looks like a reindeer with lovely antlers. Really recommendable trip.

This is amazingly breath taking beautiful contact with pure unspoiled nature. The nature that people so mindlessly devastate in so-called 'first world'. Don't go there to spoil it - just be happy it's still there.
