What to Expect
Emplaced at the front line of the Andes overlooking the valley of Santiago, Provincia is one of the most popular summits between mountaineers.

Part of the mountain ridge of Sierra de Ramón, with a vertical drop of 1,700m (5,577ft), its summit is usually covered by snow in winter and spring.

This rock-giant challenges those who wish to experience the typical high mountain experience. Adding to the effects of the altitude, the hike up takes about 5 hours, so the climb is very exhausting and requires a high degree of physical ability. However, all efforts will be rewarded by the wonderful excursion: passing through an imposing sclerophyllous forest given by perennial vegetation representative of Mediterranean climate (peumos, boldos and quillayes among others species), with panoramic views of the city of Santiago to the west, we will reach up to where there is no more vegetation. Different shades of rocky material are shown, condors usually overfly the sector and the impressive Andes appear from behind.

We recommend to climb Provincia from April to November, specially in spring when summit is still covered by -not to much- snow. A wide range of upland birds usually delight us during this ascent.
