Several smaller rivers and streams flow into the Maupo River and within the area there are several waterfalls and also hot springs whilst the rivers are popular for white water rafting. During the summer the area is popular with walkers. It is also popular with archaeologists and several Inca artefacts have been found including the mummy of an Inca boy, found in 1954, which is now on display in the National Museum of Natural History in Santiago.
