Cajón del Maipo is an Andean canyon located only 45 kilometers southeast of Santiago. Through the years it has represented an oasis for capital dwellers who seek fresh air and a respite from the bustle of the city.
feature img MAIPO VALLEY - CHILE


With a handful of peaceful mountain communities scattered along the sides of the road that traverses the canyon running alongside the Maipo River, there are plenty of chances to connect with local central Chile mountain culture in the midst of the imposing Andean foothills. One of its highlights is El Morado Natural Monument, a glacial cirque that resembles an amphitheater formed by glacial erosion, that is home to San Francisco glacier, and to many flora and fauna species, among which is the magnificent Andean condor.
