Punta Pirulil Trekking, Muelle de las Almas (Pier of souls)


Punta Pirulil its located south from Chiloé National Park, it is a place mainly inhabited by people of the area. Our adventure begins in Cucao, we will take south to Rahue where we will visit a local couple, great fossil gatherers with vast knowledge of these remote surroundings. After that we will go to Punta Pirulil adventuring towards the “Muelle de las Almas” (Pier of Souls), our final mystic destination. The story tells that after you die, your soul goes to this Pier and asks for “balseo” (a boat ride) that is when a white sailed wooden boat approaches with a long bearded boatman standing. He will ask for two coins in exchange of carrying your soul to the afterlife. This is our break spot where we can also contemplate the majestic Pacific Ocean, the incredible bird wildlife and, if we are lucky, whale watching can happen.
