Private tour Cajón del Maipo, El Yeso reservoir near Santiago

Description

We will start our tour very early in the morning to enjoy a beautiful sunrise at the El Yeso reservoir. An incomparable scenery with the surrounding mountains covered with a blanket of snow. It is the perfect backdrop to immortalize the moment with a good photograph.

Arriving at the mountain range, we will stop in San José de Maipo to have breakfast and gather strength so we can comfortably climb the demanding 700-meter hike that leads us to the viewpoint from where we will contemplate the sky reflected in the waters of the reservoir.

Next, we head to the El Yeso waterfall, a 15-meter waterfall with a safe observation area. Here we will rest and, if you wish, you can take the opportunity to make your own picnic.

Later we will visit the Tinoco Tunnel, built in 1906, through which a small railroad used to connect the high bridge with the mining town of El Volcan.

We will sweeten our excursion with a visit to the original ice cream and chocolate shop La Casa de Chocolate, which stands out for its exquisite artisanal flavors and the architecture and sculptures that adorn the terrace and gardens.

After the visit to the chocolate house, a delicious lunch based on the local gastronomy awaits you in a typical mountain restaurant. Included in the price. To culminate this experience, we will enjoy the rest of the afternoon at the beautiful Mahuida private recreation area. It has gardens and outdoor hot tubs.
