Discover and explore the beautiful Embalse el Yeso Reservoir on this challenging and rewarding high-mountain trek from Santiago! Set out from the trailhead at San Jose de Maipo and hike along scenic mountain ridges. In the winter, snowshoe over snowy trails! The trek up to the reservoir is difficult but boasts spectacular views of the snow-capped Andes and surrounding valley. The outstanding panorama from the reservoir is well worth the effort!
Your local guide will lead you on the trek and provide you with fascinating information about the region. You’ll have all the gear you need to hike comfortably, and when you reach the reservoir, relax and recharge with complementary snacks.
If you’d like to extend your day in the Andes, relax and rest your muscles at the El Plomo Hot Springs ($30.00 USD/person)! Contact us at email@example.com for information or to book your tour!
