My January 2016 Patagonia trip was cut short. Only a month.
I’m planning to stay longer this time.
Arriving Santiago January 20th. Planning to start in Mendoza. Head to Bariloche from there for hiking and cycling.
I’m looking at photos of the Patagonian Andes for inspiration. These are from the upcoming documentary Unbounded. It should be released sometime Spring 2018.
I grew up in Calgary. Had a summer home near Nelson, B.C. for 30 years … yet couldn’t recall any Goat Range Provincial Park.
Have you heard of it?
This park has some rugged possibilites but few developed trails. There is one short but awesome old growth cedar walking trail, and one short hike to a spectacular waterfall. …
Field and Forest made a trip. Posted some wonderful photos.

Best hike editor Rick McCharles posts his photos on flickr. Explore those hikes (since 2006).
… the largest wilderness area in South-East Asia and an UNESCO world heritage area since 2004. It is further part of the tropical rain forest heritage of Sumatra, allowing for spectacular experiences in this fortunately still widely untouched nature.
The hike itself is a unique experience for several reasons:
No trails are available and one totally has to rely on the guide to find the way through the jungle (mainly following former rebel trails).
4-6 porters accompany you and provide you with the most delicious hiking food you’ll ever get to taste (don’t forget to tip).
You will not see ANYONE other than your party during the whole hike.
The wilderness of the jungle and its inhabitants is just breathtaking.
The river crossings are an adventure itself.
They recommend local guides Expedition Jungle.
