Tour Itinerary:

We will meet at 9:00 am, to begin the journey to the mountain, we take the same route as to the ski resorts of Santiago, to find in the curve 15 the Sanctuary “Yerba Loca”, where we will go into a dirt road to the parking lot. We will have a soft trekking about 5 hours to the waterfall, stopping for lunch and talk about the geography, history, flora and fauna, as rest as well.

In place we will appreciate this beautiful valley near a spectacular waterfall and the amazing feeling of being penetrated in a valley surrounded by huge mountains, “Cerro altar” (5180 meters), "False Altar" (4549 meters), "The Polvareda", "The Manchón" (3720 m) and the presence of this ancient being, the "Glacier La Paloma" (4910 m). Here we will have time to build towers of stone "Pircas" as usually is done in the mountains. Then we return path back to the entrance of the sanctuary, go to our van and stop our descent into the locals to eat some delicious homemade empanadas, accompanied by a mote with huesillo.
