Carratera Austral, Chile
Traveling down this 770 mile rough highway leads to experience some of the best natural features that central America has to offer. The northern section of the highway cuts through Parque Pumalín, a privately owned park. Here you can experience stretches of beautiful tropical rainforest, responsible farmland, and rivers. Farther south on the trail, you can visit La Junta. This is a great spot to explore Chile’s struggle with dictatorships, due to a monument to the dictator Pinochet being located here. Traveling even farther south, you enter increasingly tougher terrain, but you experience the mist-shrouded mountains of Parque Nacional Queulat.
