The Petrohue Waterfalls are on the upper reach of the Petrohue River, and are located in the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park in Chile. It is a chute type of waterfall that is set against the dramatic background of the Osorno Volcano.
The Todos los Santos Lake lies downstream. The water from the falls is quite cold and more enjoyable to look at than bathe in.
The best way to see the waterfalls is to book a tour of the National Park. The terrain is challenging and ideal only for the toughest of hikers. One may also consider stopping here to take in the scenic beauty before you cross the border into Argentina.Places nearby:
