Mt. Carpa (2.776 masl) Trekking


A great mountain known by few!

 

Undoubtedly, the Cordón de los Españoles attracts attention for its beauty and for the 5 summits that we can find in this Cordón.
The Mt. Carpa (2,776 masl) does not go unnoticed and is the most visible summit of the Cordón de los Españoles. The trekking that we can make in this mountain, contemplates an ascent that allows to initiate a progressive warming up. The slope is not steep and direct as is the case of other mountains in the Metropolitan Region, therefore, in the first hours of walking you can enjoy a progressive but long ascent, surrounded by sclerophyllous forest of the central area and wide valleys in the lower part of the mountain.

 

On this mountain are the remains of a small plane, known as the “monument to the crashed plane”, which is located just before connecting with the edge of Mt. Conchalí (2,552 masl). When visiting Mt. Carpa (2,776 masl) do not forget that you can also visit the summit of Mt. Conchalí (2,552 masl). Both mountains have spectacular views of the central Andes.

 

If you want to enjoy a quiet and less visited trek, ideal for those who prefer to be and feel closer to nature and/or mountains, this is the trekking we can recommend.

You will have the best conditions to spot majestic condors and see the stunning Andes Mountains in all their splendor.

 

It really is a trekking that you will enjoy from beginning to end!
