Embalse el Yeso

Reviewed By Barbara Valenti... I - Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile

It's located one hour away from Santiago, In San José de maipo. You can go by car. I recommend you to wear comfy shoes and bring your camera. You will not want to miss the beautiful and colorfull view of the great landscape.
It's a place where you can stay the whole day if you want and make a picnic with family or friends.

Tunel Ferroviario del Tinoco

Reviewed By Don P - Dallas, Texas, United States

This is an old railroad tunnel. The myth is that someone who died here, Willy Antonio, speaks on the wind and can grant favors to people. Because of speaking on the wind there are many little pinwheels attached to a fence at one end of the tunnel. There are many little gifts and requests for favor and/or help also attached to the fence at one end. This has become a shrine. Walking through the tunnel is a short experience in Darkness (use your phone or flashlight for walking).

Aguas Panimavidas

These mineral Springs are in the protected Wilderness of El Morado National Park.

Reviewed By AbeBi - Santiago

Nice trekking, a little bit hard/steep at the very beggining, but the reward at the end of the path is to look at the whole El Morado Valley, plenty of beautiful peaks, like El Morado, Rubillas, San Francisco, Mirador del Morado, Punta Rodriguez, etc. Mountaineering paradise!.
If you visit this place at winter season will be much more interesting, be careful with avalanches.

Plaza de Armas

Reviewed By J Machado M - Sorocaba, SP

A Pracinha é tipica de cidades pequenas do interior. Com restaurantes e comércios ao seu redor, tem em seus atrativos umas barraquinhas bem mais ou menos. Priorize os passeis em Elbalse e as piscinas termais, pois a praça pouco acrescenta.

Camino al Volcan

Reviewed By LadyFromBelgium - Dendermonde

The last 20 km have the more beautiful landscapes through a beautiful, peaceful canyon. The last part of the road is gravel with some menor river crossings. Possible with a normal car.

El Ingenio

Reviewed By Alvaroiturrietav - Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile

El Ingenio es una pequeña localidad ubicada en el enorme sector llamado como generalidad Cajon del Maipo. Efectivamente, el Cajón cuenta con innumerables localidades, pueblos y sectores en donde el contacto con la naturaleza es la primera opción.
El ingenio es un sector bastante agradable y bello de visitar.

Glaciar Colgante El Morado

Reviewed By Mónica T - Santiago, Chile

Un bello trekking. En aproximadamente tres horas de caminata por un sendero de montaña de inigualable belleza escénica se accede al Glaciar. Impresiona verlo tan cerca. En época estival muchos témpanos flotan y mueven con el viento. Muchas veces es posible admirar los desprendimientos de hielo. Este glaciar ha retrocedido rápidamente en los últimos años. Para acceder debe solicitarse permiso a Alto Maipo. Hasta dicho campamento el camino se encuentra en muy buena condiciones, pero de ahí en adelante hay un trayecto en pésimo estado, sólo accesible para vehículos 4x4. La opción es estacionar frente a la faena y sumar 1 hora al trekking. durante el trayecto es posible obtener agua de un estero
