The fall is here and some of us, usually think that means goodbye to the little getaways and vacations, but that's not the case in Chile! Find out here about the top 5 foliage destinations to photograph this autumn in this beautiful country.
Most people connect hiking through the woods, having a nice dip in a lake and camping under the stars with summer. But we think that you can also visit National Parks in autumn, and you can enjoy them even more.
One of the biggest perks is the lack of crowds, but the best is the change in the foliage. In this time of the year, the woods turn red, brown and, yellow, turning into the perfect scenery for photography lovers.
1. Conguillío National Park
In autumn it's photogenic lagoons are framed by walls of red and yellow ñirres (Nothofagus Antarctica), that makes a beautiful contrast with the always green araucarias that characterizes this park.
Located in the Araucanía region, it stands out for its Lonquimay volcano, that with its peak snowed, makes the perfect composition combined with the colorful fall slopes at its feet.
3. Huerquehue National Park
This magic park is located only a few kilometers from Pucón, where the best landscapes are given by the lagoons that reflect the colorful autumnal trees.
The bluish-white Grey Glacier contrast with the orange-yellow colored Lengas (Nothofagus Pumilio) that all together stand out from the grey mountains and rock formations.
5. Cerro Castillo National Reserve
Another unmissable landscape to photograph this fall is located in Aysen region near Coyaique town, where the reddish trees perfectly combine with the imposing stone walls that attract hikers to this destination.
