walking in the clouds

G`day Mates! welcome to another amazing Chapter in South America....I`m traveling and climbing in one of the most beautiful and wild landscapes ever... The Andes MountainsThe privileged environment in Termas de Chillán offers the opportunity to develop a great variety of trekking by The Andes Mountain Range, crossing wonderful circuits, among millenary forests that let the visitor to be in contact with the nature and appreciate directly the boundaries of this amazing spot. Among the different alternatives we can make the following expeditions: Chillán Volcano, La Gruta de los Pangues, La Olla del Mote, Shangrilá, Los Frailes Route, Las Tres Marías, Aguas Claras Valley, las Termas viewing point, Valle Hermoso, Nevado and Valle de Aguas Calientes, among others...
Satellital map of location ...







Las Trancas is a located exceptional valley in the skirts of Chillán volcanos in the Andes mountain.At south of the central zone of Chile, in the region 'Bio-Bio'. It's located at 5 km of the ski and spa resort Termas of Chillan.The ski resort is 1600 meters of high, it is equipped of numerous tracks and a thermal water center opened all the year





















Cold wind and water in your face....birds.....Shadows....Old trees....I´m walking in the middle of the clouds...silence...this trip makes you remember The Lord of the Rings or some old dusty Talkien book...



The Explorers.... Juan Esteban Chavarría, aka" Suruyewsky", traveller and Crazy Drile´s friend
Carlos Wevar, Crazy Drile´s friend, born in a farm, expert in horse travel (Chile - Argentina)








Colorful flowers everywhere, like a gifht from the Universe








Four wheel drive, turn on the lights...a bit of coffee and keep walking

G´day my Love, the trip was amazing...the team Better!

Really a unique experience...in this place the heaven is touching the earth... really cold, fresh and humid air in your face...no words!

It is a long trip...but depens of you...my trip was something like 4 hours, but you can walk months if you want... you`ll need just good jackets, camping gear, mountain equipment, and camping supplies

good shoes as well

Magic and Holy Place Subongkot...a gift from the Universe, like Nan Tien Temple

Kisses from Chile my Love

your Captain,
Sebastian

Fotos mágicas, en una tierra mágica.

Sólo falta que aparezcan los duendes, las hadas y otros seres mitológicos. Tuviste suerte de que te tocara un día así, neblinoso.

¡Hola Crazy! maravillosas fotos , seguro que disfrutastes de lo lindo.
No conozco esas flores, pero estate seguro que voy a investigar sobre ellas.Ahora estoy un poco ocupada con el fin del trimestre, pero en cuanto pueda me pongo en ello.Ten en cuenta que estás en otro hemisferio y en el Nuevo Mundo. Sobre todo la amarilla y naranja es extraña y preciosa a la vez .¿Es una planta trepadora, o arbusto? Un saludo. Franchesca

Gabriela said...

Se siente la fuerza de la naturaleza y su belleza.

Kisses from Chile

Crazy Drile™ said...

Bienvenida Franchesca, me alegra que una experta como tu, haya visto las fotos de las flores ya que estaban ubicadas en lugares en donde a nadie se le ocurriría que alguna flor podría sobrevivir...

Para ser franco no se mucho de flores, pero por tu pregunta, creo sería una trepadora...estaba ubicada en un lugar de poca luz y con mucha agua que salpicaba las cascadas al caer....a metros de distancia, se divisaban algunos helechos

Mantente en contacto, saludos en España


Crazy Drile

ps: Felicitaciones por tu website

Crazy Drile™ said...

So long time Samantha....nice to see you again

It is a dream....walk in The Andes Mountains is something unreal

Take it easy!
