What you can expect

We left Santiago direct to San José de Maipo. We will also visit the town of San José de Maipo to learn about its history and local culture. We will continue the trip along the Maipo River and between the mountains and then stop at the Tinoco Tunnel, declared a National Historic Monument, becoming a point of interest, due to local paranormal stories. Then, we continue towards the Reservoir and we will make a stop at the Las Cáscaras Refuge, an old settlement from the 60s, which was originally used as a camp for the workers who built the reservoir. From there, we can see one of the most emblematic glaciers in the area between the high peaks. Finally we go to the Reservoir to enjoy the incredible mountain scenery and a moment of peace in nature. Difficulty: Easy. From 7 years to 70 years. Route with low or minimum unevenness. Health compatible with activity is required.

Activity: Panoramic tour to El Yeso Reservoir, without walking except during the Winter season (May-October) due to winter conditions and presence of snow, you can have a walk of 20 to 25 minutes to reach the reservoir, we will leave Cajón del Maipo in the direction of Santiago.
