Chile & Easter Island - Sur Chico (Chapter)
This is the Sur Chico chapter from Lonely Planet’s Chile & Easter Island guidebook.
The Chilean south begins here. The regions of La Araucanía, Los Ríos and the Lakes District jar travelers with their menacing ice-topped volcanoes; its glacial lakes that look like melted Chinese jade; and roaring rivers running through old growth forests and villages inhabited by the indomitable Mapuche people.
