Location: Purgaorio Summit, Pirque
The Purgatory hill is located in the southern sector of our city of Santiago de Chile, it is a hill that by its name intimidates many, but without a doubt that name is not part of the reality of the hill. De Purgatorio has nothing. The hill from the beginning is friendly on the climb, has wonderful vegetation and birds and a slope that climbs progressively. We could say that the final stretch of the mountain is, by far, the most difficult and it is in this part where the effort is totally worth and give everything to reach its characteristic summit that we can appreciate from all the Maipo and Pirque valley.
From the summit we can see part of the Cajon del Maipo and sectors such as El Canelo and El Manzano, which are seen in their entirety. But, the best without a doubt is to see the majesty of the Cordillera de los Andes, which is located just in front of the Purgatory hill. In addition, it highlights the view of Cerro Minillas and Punta de Damas, which rise and impose with its snowy peaks.
The descent is undoubtedly one of the friendliest in the central Andes, with no direct slopes or slippery terrain.
If you want to live a physically demanding but at the same time friendly experience, Cerro Purgatorio is a walk that you should consider without a doubt.
