The Cajón del Maipo is a must-see destination in the Metropolitan Region. Its rivers, mountains, valleys and landscapes make it a mystical and unforgettable place. In the depths of the Cajón del Maipo, we find an impressive place: the Arenas Valley. This immense valley opens up through great mountains, rivers and volcanoes. The route invites us to go deep into this valley, with a trekking that thrills for its beauty and the imposing environment that surrounds us, you will be in front of great rock walls, you will enjoy the fresh wind of the mountains and you will hear the sound of the river that flows down from them. This is just a part of what you will experience when you visit this great place. We will follow the trail which will take us to the great Hanging Glacier El Morado (3.237 masl) Yes, a Glacier just a few hours from Santiago! Here, you can also live the experience of walking around huge volcanoes and hills, such as: the San Jose Volcano (which surprises us with its beauty and height of no less than 5,856 meters above sea level), and the Cerro Marmolejo (the southernmost six thousand in the world, with its 6,108 meters above sea level). After walking for about 3 to 4 hours (approximately), we will be in front of the impressive El Morado Hanging Glacier and the lagoon that surrounds it. This glacier is one of the few glaciers in the Metropolitan Region visible and reachable by day trekking.

Without a doubt, it will move you! In this place you can breathe fresh air, hear the roar of the great rivers that turn different colors in each season and the landscape becomes moving and impressive to the eye.
