  • in the summer and in the spring the ride the "Cajon del Maipo" is an option since this time no snow! The way to the water reserve of Santiago. the landscape is charming and the road is often dangerous. In many landscape may be seen the peak of the ridges with remains of ice!

  • Beautiful, excellent place to take wonderful pictures and appreciate a good wine with cheese! Tourist companies usually do this baby! It is important to note that the access road is dangerous

  • This is an unmissable ride from Santiago. Several agencies offer. Important to take warm clothes that can be taken. In our case did an intense cold all the time. The road to get is, if you get sick, better to take any medication before. After the van parking, walk to the curve. Linda vista. And the tasting of parrilla or cold is very good
