A phenomenal height trek, from beginning to end

 Plantat Refuge (3.130 masl)

 

A must-see trekking in the Santiago Metropolitan Region. Located in the depths of the mythical Cajón del Maipo, at the foot of the majestic San José Volcano (5,856 meters above sea level).

To get there, we will take our vehicle to the “El Cabrerío” sector, which is characterized by having shelters for sheep breeding. From this point our trekking begins. Then, we will arrive at a place of charm called “Valle de la Engorda”, where you can see a blanket of vegetation in which the cattle feed each summer and in the background you can observe the imposing San José volcano. That’s where the El Volcán river is born, so you have to cross a couple of smaller rivers.

Then, we will take the trail that takes a considerable slope through a ravine that will lead us directly to the San José volcano.

In approximately three hours of trekking we will arrive at the Plantat Refuge, a small building dating from 1937 (built by Enrique Plantat and his sister).

Upon arriving at the Plantat Refuge, we can feel and observe the magnitude of the mountains, in the Andes Mountain Range.

This place marks the base camp for an eventual ascent to the San José volcano and is an ideal height trekking for acclimatization.
