Osorno volcano in the southern winter morning from Vicente Perez Rosales national park. The falls are not very impressive, but what makes it popular is easy access and the backdrop of volcanoes. Vicente Pérez Rosales national park was created in 1926 and as such is the oldest park in the country. It has a surface area of 251,000 hectares and is situated in one of the most privileged zones in the country. About Petrohue:

Petrohue (pronounced petro-way) is a tiny lovely town located in front of the Lago Todos los Santos and at the base of the Orsono volcano, 64 km from Puerto Varas, and 84 km from Puerto Montt, in the Chilean Lake District
Petro is the name given to the giant blood sucking mosquitoes of the area, and 'hue' means place.
The journey from Puerto Montt to Petrohue is a car ride of a little over an hour. The road skirts by numerous little farms, goes through Puerto Varas, a very touristy town, and along the shores of Lago Llanquihue, going finally along the Petrohue river, with the views of Orsono (2661m), Puntiagudo (2490m) and Tronador (3460m) volcanoes ever present.
