Description

 Very close to Santiago we found this interesting mountain canyon

We will visit this valley located in the south side of Santiago city. This is a narrow canyon that gets 100 km into the mountains close to Argentina's border.

On the way, we will first stop at the Maipo Valley "capital" for a local countryside breakfast close to the fireplace. After that a short walk to visit the city center, the old church, and the main square.

We continue our way to the Embalse El Yeso, a beautiful mountain lagoon that was built to provide water to the city, very nice views and a short walk "El Mirador de los Vientos" an incredible viewpoint.
We get back to the car an drive 15 minutes to a local place where we have an appetizer and lunch.
