What special precaution should I take before I visit remote areas?

There are not significant dangers in the wilderness areas of Chile from animals.  However, it is important to remember that the climate can change drastically in areas like the altiplano, the high peaks, and the Patagonia.  It is recommended to advise hostels/hotels, the police, and forest rangers prior to traveling to remote regions.  It is always necessary to bring the appropriate equipment, food, and first aid supplies for each trip.
