Where to go in Chaitén?
El Amarillo Hot Spring
Located 18 kms from Chaitén, on a paved road going south. There are three thermal baths here, but no equipment.
This is a beautiful, huge lake with emerald-colored waters of glacial origin, located 46 km south of Chaitén. It is surrounded by tall hills with sheltered snowfields on its forested slopes.
From here you can have a beautiful sight of Corcovado Volcano (2,300 mt). This is just south of the Gulf of Corcovado, in line with Quellón, where the river Palena reaches the sea.
