Departure at 7:15AM from Talca bus station with the public bus to Vilches Alto, our starting point. From there we hike the first 3 hours in the Reserva National Altos de Lircay to our camping place just below the Enladrillado. Here we pitch our tents before we start with small luggage the 2 hours ascent to the Enladrillado, the mysterious UFO landing site. The effort will be rewarded by an overwhelming view of the Dezcabezado Grande volcano and its neighbors.
Crossover to the Valle del Indio valley. For today we will plan around 7 hours hiking where we will be surrounded by fantastic mountains, especially the beheaded volcano, which will be the focus of our views. The summits of the surrounding mountains are snow covered until summertime.
Our days target is the nicely located camping place El Bolsón below the mountain range Colmillo del Diabolo (the devils tooth).
Today we hike from the El Bolsón to the Reserva National Parque Inglés around 4 hours downhill to the park entrance.
