Thousands of visitors enter the Cochamó Valley each year. This past season more than 16,000 people passed through. All tourists must register at the Visitor Center, where park rangers and volunteers register their entry and help control a max capacity for campsites and the valley. The team of park rangers and volunteers is made up of people related to the world of tourism and conservation. Each year we must organize the applications and the organization of the work teams. They are indispensable in providing adequate information to visitors about the conservation of these ecosystems, safety to avoid accidents, looking for lost people, keeping the recycling system in order, among other tasks.
