Bosque Piedra: an ecological, botanical and geological world
Discover the natural and cultural riches of Chiloé on this visit to the pristine Bosquepiedra Private Park.
We begin our tour by heading southwest to Huillinco Lake. The park, sprawls for 12 hectares and is thick with dense, evergreen forest made up of canelos, coigues, avellano and mañio trees which are native to the region.
Bosquepiedra has an impressive array of plantlife, including ferns, and a lichen garden whose miniature “forests” can be seen through magnifying glasses. The park lies on a geological fault line, and you can see exposed rock strata and deep pools sculpted out of the ground as well.
