    Great views of the Andes to the east and amazing views of the Santiago Valley and city to the west. Native flora and fauna. Intense steep hike of 3 hours up plus 2 hours downhill. Our groups are small and we respect the speed of the group. Reach summit is not necessary to enjoy the amazing view and enjoy the surroundings. We are focus in the experience not just the summit.
