  • We wanted to get at least close to the Andes so we booked a day hike to Monumento El Morado. We were picked up at our hotel and driven through the beautiful Maipo valley. We made one stop at a market ...  more »
  • Getting here is half the fun, thru the spectacular Maipo valley. As you get to Banos Morales, you leave the main road and take this dirt road that is very steep both on the way down and up the other s...  more »
  • In order to get to the park it is recommended to go with your own vehicle since the buses only reach the town Baños Morales during the weekends on the high season. I went on April, so the bus took me ...  more »

  • Absolutely loved this hike please add this to your itinerary while in Chile. Bring some good boots, hiking poles will help for sure. I can't wait to go back!!
  • Just wow! Must visit, if you are in Santiago! Great unspoiled spot just in couple of hours or so ride from Santiago. Easily accessible without pricey tours - there are several buses running, including regular (every day in summer time; weekends - in winter time) MetroBus MB-72 (starts from Terminal Bellavista de La Florida at 7:30; starts back to Santiago from Banos Morales at 18:00, 8K pesos per person for roundtrip). Hike is relatively easy, compared to Cerro Pochoco/ Cerro Manquehue and involves almost no climbing; takes around 8 KM from the start of the route (Baños Morales) to end of the route (Glaciar San Francisco). 5-6 hours should be enough for roundtrip (including some time for bird watching, flowersniffing and enjoying great scenery). Be sure to have plenty of water (2 liters per person worked in our case), hiking shoes, sunscreen (little to no shade on the route).
  • Great place for mountain trekking, gorgeous views, great chance to see the glacier even during the summer.
  • Very easy trekking for children and adults. With a 2 hour hike you will reach the laguna Morales. with 45 minutes to the San Francisco glacier... Along the way you'll find varied and unique flora. You are served by a very friendly birds that tell them cometocinos bring water drink and snack bar for the road. Shoes trekking, block, glasses, Sun Hat Sun or cold depending on time (covering the ears... the Andean wind is very strong wind if you arrive at the glacier... at this point temperature changes significantly
