Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Kyala Shea

Cochamó is a remote valley in the Chilean Andes, accessible only by foot or horseback. The stunning landscape and virgin temperate rainforest attract visitors from around the world, but it is a particular haven for climbers, drawn to the massive and still largely unmapped granite walls.

Location: Cochamó, Los Lagos Region, Chile
