  • We went down the path of the Bishop's Hat, to get on the trail of the Sealed, we stopped at the points you could admire the view and we enjoyed a lot! Want to do a quiet trail that takes you on a mega high peak with a breathtaking view. Make this trail! It's just beautiful, you pass by a hot track and to get on top of the stone, you are enchanted seeing all green hills, clouds passing. If you stop and stay there you can live the experience of seeing the time open and close several times, with the fog passing us. I loved it! Once again, Monte Verde, enchanting us.

  • One of the major tours of the city, the place has an amazing view, but the path is a little long with ingrimes climbs in the middle of the Woods. Strong walk for beginners. Always good to take enough water, and some foods such as fruit or Granola bar. The entire ascent takes about 2 hours, pass is good repellent. Another detail has a mine in the middle of the road but do not rely on the quality of water for ingestion, my daughter had problems and can be the consumption of water. Better take your mineral water.

Where to stay in Monte Verde

For a small town, there are an exceptional number of accommodations in Monte Verde. There's no particular hotspot to aim for--almost every street offers several places to stay in the form of small inns or bed and breakfasts housed in traditional wooden houses. You can find a few larger hotels toward the edge of town or just beyond its limits. The high level of competition has ensured good-quality rooms and high standards of service across the board, in fact, plenty of accommodations offer spas and other luxury comforts as a part of your stay. Reserve your accommodations in advance, especially in January and February, when the town experiences its biggest influx of the year.
