Nice outlook of the central mountain range of Santiago. To do some trekking, picnic, barbeque or just a walk.

Nature park, very close to the city, but totally not noticable.. After the entrance (fee of 3000 pesos) you come to a parking, and there is a big BBQ area near the river. Perfect spot to spend a day in summer. From there you can walk. There are several paths, but not indicated (just one signboard with a map near... More

This was so much unexpected fun! We rented a car, with a GPS, SET THE LOCATION & in 20 short minutes we were on a dirt road traveling up the foot hills of the Andes.

There are walk paths available, either skirting the steep Andean mountain, or along the river gorge. You will need good shoes. First time we took our 3yr and 4yr for the walk and they enjoyed it. They return many times afterwards.... More

Nice place to bring your lunch and get one of the BBQ spots and spend a relax day beside the river. There are cool little paths to go for walks. After the sun sets it can be quite cold, as is in the middle of the mountains. You can only get there by car. The entry fee is about CLP2.500... More
