Trancura River

Trancura River (also known as Pucon River or Minetue River) is a river located in the Araucania Region of Chile. Its headwaters drain the southeasternmost portion of Villarrica National Park, including the northwestern slope of Lanin volcano. The river flows initially to the north and from its junction with its main tributary, the Maichin River, the Trancura turns in a westerly direction until emptying into the Villarrica Lake, after having received the waters of Caburgua Lake through Carrileufu River. This latter river emerges at the Ojos del Caburgua and is fed by the Liucura River, which further has as a tributary the outflow stream of Tinquilco Lake.

The town of Curarrehue is located near its confluence with the Maichin River.

The river is used for rafting by tourism companies in Pucon.
