Route of Parks
In Chile’s efforts to expand their national parks, they have actually been putting together the “Route of Parks” to connect 17 different national parks in Chile.
This is not only exciting for tourists, but for Chileans as well. This places a strong importance on the preservation of Chile’s fascinating landmarks.
