Up the valley of the Rio Pucón we came into country farmed by people who are very much Mapuche. We visited the Trawu Peyüm museum in Curarrehue, where we watched a couple of videos about Machis. We hiked for a couple of hours just before sundown in the Huerquehue National Park, then returned almost to Curarrehue to the Kila Leufu (“Three Rivers”) Bed & Breakfast. We were delighted with this charming place, hosted by Irma, a Mapuche with lots of charm and wisdom.
