PALI AIKE NATIONAL PARK
THE DEVIL'S ATTRACTIVE ESCORIAL

Don't let the opportunity to visit this place that Pali Aike Tourism offers you slip by.

 

Pali Aike National Park is located 210 kilometres from Punta Arenas and has an approximate extension of 5.030 hectares. It was created on October 23rd 1970 with the purpose of showing a zone of extraordinary beauty and great scientific and faunistic interest, not to mention the threat of extinction of its fauna and flora; therefore, it is necessary to protect and preserve it for the wole community's benefit due to the diverse resources that it has which makes it unique in Chile.

 

Here, the first traces of human life in this southernmost region were found eleven thousand years ago.

 

It has an undoubtable scenic beauty because of lava formations, natural caves and medium height hills which constitute the landscape that is in sharp contrast with the surrounding stepe which is a real natural refuge for "guanacos", skunks, grey foxes, wildcats, armadillos and patagonian ferrets.

 

In volcanic grounds where there are caves and scarce vegetation lives the eary bat, the yellow snout rat, the "conero" rat and introduced species like the here. Among the birds, the upland goose, the kestrel, the "carancho" ( a vulture), southern lapwing and lesser rhea can be seen.

As concerns the flora, we can find thatching grass, "calafate" (=berberis buxifolia), black bush (=juniellia tridens) and myrtle (=empetrum rubrum).

 

The Pali Aike volcanic zone integrated the so called "Tehuelche Country" to the Patagonian historical geography for having been the traditional ancestral ground of the natives known as "Tehuelches", "Patagones" or "Aonikenk".

These natives inherited the territory for thousand of years finding in said places a traditional hunting territory for which reason they moved regularly of diffetent places of temporary use which were individualized in Aonikoaish tongue as Aike or Aiken. Notwithstanding, despite the frecuency with which the Aonikenks walked the zone, they could never help feeling a supersticious fear towards it peculiar landscape which they called Pali Aike as the "Devil's Country", meaning that an evil spirit dwelt in it.
