LAHUEN-CO, Epulafquen Thermal Springs, a privileged place for nature.
Lahuen Co Thermal Springs (which means miraculous waters in the Mapuche language) are also known as Epulafquen Hot Springs due to Epulafquen Lake located near the area.
It is located a few kilometres from the border of the Chilean Republic and the International Pass Carrirriñe, its main access is from San Martín de los Andes and Junín de los Andes, taking the Provincial Road Nº 62. This road goes through ancient forests, crosses a river of solidified lava (The Escorial) and several lakes with volcanic sand beaches.
On the center of Lanín National Park, there is an area where you will see signs of the volcanic activity, some thermal wells in a natural state, that emerge from the earth among thawing streams and forests of Coihues, Ñires, Lenga and colihue trees.
