Welcome to Chepu

Chepu's masterpiece is a breathtaking spot overlooking the confluence of three rivers and 140 sq km of sunken forest (a phenomena created by by the 1960 Valdivia earthquake, which sunk the ground some 2m, allowing salt water to enter the area and kill the trees) – best seen at dawn on a serene kayak trip originally dreamed up Fernando Claude and Amory Uslar, two delightful, forward-thinking Santiago escapees who pioneered ecotourism in the area. Bring supplies – Chepu is rural!
