    We saw the ice on the road of the Cajon del Maipo. We had the opportunity to set up our picnic with the beautiful view of the glacier. Unique feeling to be near this wonder of nature.

    Nothing that the road to the entrance of the Park is worth it. Access to the reserve is to Baños Morales. The climb to the foot of the glacier is 8 km long slightly uphill all the way. The 3er being the most difficult. Plan of water and sunscreen. The price is ridiculous (2500 for nationals) and 5000 for foreigners and the beauty of the landscape is breathtaking.
