Trekking to the Pier of Souls
Muelle de las Almas or “Pier of Souls” is a wooden pier perched on the cliff edges above the sea, leading nowhere. The work of local artist and sculptor Chumono, Muelle de las Almas plays homage to the legend of the boatman Tempilcahue who takes the souls of the dead to their final resting place.
Your trekking to the pier will start with a scenic drive along the shores of Huillinco Lake towards the beach at Cucao. Once at the beach, you can walk along the coastal trails that overlook the ocean followed by hilly terrain in the open before reaching the cliffs, where the coastal trail overlooks the ocean. We have a picnic lunch here and climb a nearby cliff to view the the resident sea lion colony below.
