This trek starts at a popular mountain Park “Puente Ñilhue-Provincia” located in the foothills of the Andes mountain range, at
the eastern area of Santiago. This activity is perfect for people who enjoy outdoor activities. This park is composed of multiple trails, we are going to start our ascent towards “Alto del Naranjo”, for a wonderful crossing from the start point, located at the entrance of Puente Ñilhue-Provincia Park, to exit at San Carlos de Apoquindo. During the trekking, we will have the possibility to admire the beautiful Andes mountain range, the magnificent Plomo mountain and the city of Santiago. On the top of this beautiful mountain, at 1.890 meters above sea level we will find a huge “Quillay”, an emblematic native tree which has an important role on helping to clean the air we breathe. During the whole trail, we will spot native flora and fauna and the majority of the endemic species with the respective explanation. When we reach the top we will delight ourselves with a delicious sandwich at the shade of the Quillay with a privilege view over the mountains and the city.
