Dangers & annoyances

Petty thievery is more of a problem in Temuco than other towns, so keep an eye out, particularly for pickpockets at the Mercado Municipal. Also, the market vendors tend to resent being the subject of photos. There have been reports of light crime on the hike up to Cerro Ñielol. While this shouldn't discourage you from taking the hike, it is always smart to go with at least one other person.
