Carretera Austral #2: Cochrane-Rio Tranquillo

From Cochrane we cycled to Valle Chacabuco, where we spent a day hiking in the mountains. Lots of guanacos here, even in the campsite. We then cycled on to Rio Tranquillo in 2 days, with an overnight stop in the small village Puerto Bertrand on the Rio Baker. Today we took a boat trip to the marble caves and stocked up on supplies. It is still sunny and very warm. Heading back up into the mountains tomorrow towards Villa Cerro Castillo.
