The Southern Coast Sights

Reserva Nacional Río Simpson

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The evergreen forests, just north of Reserva Nacional Coyhaique, are filled with waterfalls tumbling down steep canyon walls. A lovely waterfall called the Cascada de la Virgen is a 1-km (½-mi) hike from the information center, and another called the Velo de la Novia is 8 km (5 mi) farther. About 1 km from Coyhaique, along the banks of the Simpson River, you can also see the Piedra del Indio, a rock shaped in the profile of an Indian.
