El Morado National Park/ San Francisco Glacier/ Baños Morales

We are going to a unique area close to the city of Santiago, named Cajon del Maipo. This is the place where you can do adventure tourism activities and enjoy the nature and the majestic Andes Mountain range. This spectacular excursion at El Morado Natural Monument located at 93 kms away from Santiago, is one of the most emblematic hikes from Santiago surroundings. We are going to start our walk from Baños Morales, a small mountain town located at an altitude of 1.900 meters above sea level. The pathway will bring us up to the impressive San Francisco Glacier (2500 meters) and to Morales lagoon, of glacial origin. On our way we will have a refreshing stop at “Aguas de Panimávida”, a water enriched by minerals which springs out directly from the ground. Once at Morales lagoon we are going to eat a delicious sandwich and we can fill our bottles with pure and crystalline water from the glacier. We will find native birds and flora from this place, and two unmatched beauties of the Andes mountain range: El Morado and San Francisco mountains, both above 5.000 meters of altitude.
