Description

Hike Cerro Manquehue "The Iconic mountain of Santiago" "Condors nest" in Mapudungun: Mapuche's local language.

The short distance to the city and the views that you can get in a relatively short time makes this hike a "must do" if you got a day in the city.

It is much better early on weekdays, on weekends usually, it's crowded.

The total climbing or elevation gain is 500 meters / 1500 feet in a 5k roundtrip. It is a pretty steep ascent but the good thing is that in half-day you hike to 1600 meters above sea level.

Guided by a professional Ecotourism projects manager with Wilderness First Aid certification, technical courses and deep knowledge about the area, geology, plants, birds and much more!

Mode of transport depends on the size of the group: From 0 to 3: a 4wd Ford Ranger or similar, from 3-6 a Hyundai H1 Van, From 7-10 Nissan NV 350, from 10-16 Mercedes Sprinter 515
