Mt. La Cruz stands out for being a physically demanding trekking. It is part of the great Sierra de Ramón, located in the Mahuida Park. It is known for being an excellent training hill in Santiago.
The first half of the mountain is surrounded by typical forests of the central area. Then the hill has a direct slope that leads us to the viewpoint and then to the antennas (False Summit). From this point, you have to get around a small rock climb which does not present major difficulties, but which requires attention. Once this part is overcome, we will go to the edge that will take us directly to the summit.
Once the summit is reached, we will enjoy the views both towards the Andes Mountains and our great city of Santiago. We will be able to see the majesty of large and important mountains, such as the great Apu Cerro el Plomo, Marmolejo, Tupungato and others.
This Cerro is a must-see in the Central Precordillera and is definitely worth the effort!

IN THIS WAY WE LIKE TO WORK AND ENJOY EVERY ACTIVITY
We work only with 4×4 cars equipped for the mountain (comfortable and with great capacity to travel mountain roads).
We work with groups that generally do not exceed six people per tour (which helps us provide a more personalized service, which creates a more familiar and concentrated atmosphere).
Allmountain is certified by Sernatur (Certification of Tourism Guides; Certification in Adventure Tourism, sub-areas of: High Mountain, hiking, trekking, climbing) and is registered in the Registry of Tourist Service Providers of the same institution.
Our guides are people with experience in the field and have the certifications required to work in these activities (certifications that are also being updated), such as: Wilderness First Responder Certification (WFR).
In each activity, we privilege a sustainable service: we use recyclable and organic products, we promote the principles of DLT (Don’t Leave Trace), we promote local tourism, etc.
If you want to participate in a trekking or expedition and you do not have the technical equipment to do it, Allmountain includes them within each activity (which requires it). Example: tent, crampons, ice ax, helmet, etc.
