Everybody recommended this trip to us but honestly I think it's too much wasting a full day to see just a reservoir surrounded by snowed mountains. Long trip to get there, long lines, all crowded, very poor infrastructure. And if you buy the package from...More

Great place to visit. Be very aware that a 30 minute hike at least is REQUIRED to arrive at the view points. Highly recommend continuing along the path for a further 1500 miles to glimpse the very best views. We chose to drive up which...More

It’s not worth going. The road is bumpy and dangerous in some parts. You may get stuck in traffic, if you go on the weekend or in a national holiday. I was disappointed when I got there, the view is not that great, especially in...More

This is a really nice trip I’d say depending on the weather. We went with a Turistik tour which is a full day but you spend most of the time in the bus because it takes about 2.5 hours to get there, but they make...More

A place worth going. It's about 3 hrs far from Santiago by car. We bought a tour that picked us up at 7am and bought us back around 7pm. During winter, the mountains (Cordilheira dos Andes) are covered with snow. Most of the tours offers...More

This is the place that made me feel my trip was worthy. Even when it was summer the water was perfect the contrast of the earth color and the blu sky. Amazing

I really recommend renting a car and driving to the Cajón del Maipo area, its a really peaceful and rural area, the views in the road are really nice. The embalse is beautiful but I recommend to go during winter to see the mountains full...More

This place has one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen! You can see the mountains, the clear water and feel a peace of mind. The road to get there is not easy, and has a ground road for a few km before getting...More

I wish someone had mentioned before I drove here how dangerous the road is. It is literally a one car road that has cars coming both ways so you must be alert, not only that it is a mountain edge so if anything was to...More

The lake and it’s environs are spectacular: unique. A beautiful glacier torquoise blue waters with towering mountains surrounding it and a spreading valley at the eastern end with mountains and glaciers reaching nearly 17,000 feet. But the ascent is not for the faint of heart....More
