Daytrip to Pomaire

Without much sleep inside the terribly cold and cramped overnight busĀ from Puerto Montt, we were dropped off in the outskirts of Santiago de Chile. We were about to meet and stay a couple of days with our hiking friends Jorge and Catalina which we met on the Dientes de Navarino trek. They kindly invited us to visit them and here we were. It was a sunny Sunday, our friends packed us into their beloved 4×4 Suzuki Jeep and off we went on a day road trip, away from the capital city.

Cerro Castillo 4 Day Trekking
