Chaiten is alive!


Just a short update with some information in case somebody else is planning on visiting Chaiten.
Despite that the government has decided to abandon the city, some of the inhabitants do not want to give up their town. There is no electricity, running water, fixed line telephones nor Internet available in town but several supermercatos and accomodations are open and available to serve you. And by visiting the town and using those facilities you can help the people of Chaiten.
Accomodations (not complete list, add other ones as comments):
-Hospedaje Don Carlos, Carlos Gallardo, Almirante Riveros 53, doncarlos.palena@gmail.com, 91283328, with hot showers and electricity in the evening. Also meals are available.
-La Refugio, no additional information available. Contact Nicolas from Chaitur.

About Stefan

I'm a telecommunication engineer by profession and like to discover the world by bike. I think, that it is the perfect speed to move but still be in touch with the world and the people which live there. And I'm very happy, that my girlfriend Susanna is joining me now on those adventures. If you are interested in other journeys we did so far, please also check my website www.biketravel.net.
