  • Go for long. We assume that there are declines but by car did not know where and aim directly to plaster the reservoir.

  • Be sure to visit, if you came to Santiago on holiday! The place is beautiful and the passage by Embalse el Yeso is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen! I suggest visit with a tour company, there are thousands in the city. The path is long, tiring and the road is tight, full of curves.

  • Quiet little town
  • It is a wonderful place, you can get to the banks of the River in some places, although there aren't many places where to leave the car. Good areas for picnics and extreme sports like bungee, rafting and trekking.
