Mt. La Cruz (2.552 masl) Trekking


We invite you to enjoy a day trekking, which has a challenging slope, rock climbing and a spectacular summit!

 

Mt. La Cruz stands out for being a physically demanding mountain, it is part of the great Sierra de Ramon, located in the Mahuida Park. It is known to be an excellent training hill in Santiago. The first half of the mountain is surrounded by forests typical of the central zone. Then the hill has a direct slope that takes us to the viewpoint and then to the antennas (false summit). From this point, we must negotiate a small rock climb which does not present major difficulty, but requires attention. Once we overcome this part, we will go to the ridge that will take us directly to the summit. Once we reach the summit, we will enjoy the views of both the Andes Mountains and our great city of Santiago. We will be able to see the majesty of great and important mountains, such as the great Apu Cerro el Plomo, Marmolejo, Tupungato and others.

 

This mountain is a must-see of the Central Precordillera and is definitely worth the effort!

In each activity, we privilege the provision of a sustainable service: we use recyclable and organic products, we promote the principles of NDR (Leave No 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 so, Allmountain includes them within each activity (if required). Example: tent, crampons, ice axe, helmet, etc.
