Tamango National ReserveRegión de Aysén
General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo
Located 9 km from Cochrane, this national reserve has a surface area of 6,925 hectares, and is protected by CONAF.
You can reach the reserve by car or by crossing the river Cochrane, one kilometer from the town, towards the hills that rise up from the south banks.
A large community of huemeles (southern Andean deer) from the Cervidae family live here, which grow up to 100 cm in height and 70 km in weight and live in groups of 2 or 3. The color of their fur varies according to the season, ranging from a golden yellow to some with patches of gray. Their antlers have two points and they are found on hillsides and steep ground, no higher than 1,300 meters. It is important to remember that they are a protected species, and as such hunting them is banned. The flora of the reserve is mainly made up of lenga and coihues that you can observe on the guided tours that are available. There are cabins, campsites and picnic areas.
