2023-Mar-17 / SOBO / RR / 2.5 days / Martin & Helena
Definitely one of the easiest sections. Its basically all MR walking, but we were again surprised by the surrounding landscape that we found really attractive actually.
Just a few comments: at the settlement km 4 you need to leave the MR, and from there its more like a trail until the settlement 3 kms further. Camp at km 12.9 is nice and very similiar place is behind the ford (very easy), before the start of the ascent. Ford 39.4 can be done without entering the property of settlement, MR crosses the river before the entrance. No water at km 42.5 at this time, the next one was near the puesto km 45.4. No problem with other fords in mid March.
In La Tapera are a few shops, nothing big, but enough to resupply. Two places with comidas - completos, sandwiches and other fast-food things. One of them accepts cc. Also at least 2 accommodations, one of them was full, but the other was in a blue house, cost 15k CLP pp with wifi and hot water, nice and clean + amazing guests.
