The Central Valley Sights

Parque Nacional Radal Siete Tazas

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

This 10,000-acre national reserve, 70 km (43 mi) southeast of Curicó, is famous for the unusual "Seven Teacups," a series of pools created by waterfalls along the Río Claro. From the park entrance, where you'll find a CONAF station, the falls are a short hike away. Farther along the trail are two other impressive cascades: the Salto Velo de la Novia (Bridal Veil Falls) and Salto de la Leona (Lioness Falls). The park is home to a wide range of flora and

fauna. Black woodpeckers, hawks, and eagles are common throughout the park, and condors nest in the highest areas. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the scarce loro tricahue, an endangered species that is Chile's largest and most colorful parrot. Camping is permitted in the park, which is snowed over in winter. October–March is the best time to visit.
