  • The full trail can be hard for those who have the habit of doing this kind of activity. Early on there's plenty of climb and it is a constant during the return journey. The total time revolves around 3hrs of 1:45 hrs trip back a step and with quick stops, so if you need to make in a slow and with many stops or lengthy stops, it is important to start the trail early. As is to take advantage of the beautiful landscapes and the beautiful glacier.

  • This Park has intensity medium for those who want to do trekking, there is a stretch of effort, but when you reach the end, the scenery is so beautiful that it is worth, there is a campsite next to the entrance and is cheap and safe.

  • We were in doubt, but when we arrived and saw the extraordinary beauty of the place. Don't nominate for children because the walk is quite heavy. The first two kms are the worst, but there are 11 paid about of 5mil input weights, as was the rate for tourist. Has agencies mtas that do this kind of ride, but charge expensive. We were on our own and we took the bus MB-72 that leaves at 7:30 Metrobuses Terminal Bellavista la Florida, connected to the subway. But beware because the metro on Sundays and holidays from 8:00, so we had to catch a bus to the terminal Bellavista la Florida. The bus MB-72 only comes out on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Pay 8000 pesos (round trip) for each one. The bus back to Santiago at 6:00 pm, so you have to pay attention at times. (a walk in the Park is signposted and has on-site and tourists travelling can do without Guide. Just go with water, light, food, clothing and comfortable shoes protector).

  • Away from the city (of Santiago, nearest city) Ideal to spend a pleasant day in the pure air. Important to go in a pickup truck with good traction and appropriate clothing (runs icy wind) in the compound of the CONAF not you can camp but in the village of the sector there is camping at affordable prices. Also in the sector, there is a thermal bath "Baños Morales" water is not so hot but the brave can take the risk. The hike to glaciers is not complicated, must take your time and bring water and suitable because the climate is changing constantly, can pass a cute Sun to a wonderful snowfall. And if you can a camera to immortalize beautiful places that can deliver you the Cordillera de Los Andes.
