One of the most attractive peaks on the South part of Lanin National Park, Acol displays magnificent views of lakes Queñi, Nonthué and Lácar and the Chilean mountain range. To get to the start of the trail we will take the course to Hua Hum, on the west end of Nonthué Lake and just a few meters away from the Chilean border. After crossing the Hua Hum River we will take the route to Queñi Lake, where we will leave the vehicle to start our hike. The first part goes through and splendid Raulí (Nothofagus alpina) forest with a dense undergrowth of Colihue Cane. As we gain altitude the Raulí gives way to the Lenga (Nothofagus pumilio), until we reach a viewpoint where we will make a stop. After going around a high meadow we will reach the rocky ground that will take us to the summit, at 1,884 m above sea level. We will have our lunch there while we enjoy the amazing views.
