Itinerary and service (per day)
We will go to San José de Maipo, where we will make our first stop to see the town. After this break we will continue on our journey to Baños Morales where we will begin our trek, which immerses us in its great beauty, at the heart of the Andes Mountain Range. Here we can observe the mineral water tributaries, a lagoon made by the melted portions of the San Francisco Glacier. We can also observe the park’s fauna, rich in bird species, particularly the Giant Hummigbrid, the Sierra Finch and the Austral Thrush. Mount El Morado is the tallest mountain at 5,060 m. Above sea level(masl), and is what gives this wildlife reserve its name. The itinerary described above is a guideline.
