     TOUR CH-12 Maipo Valley and El Yeso Reservoir


Departure at 0830, drive south of Santiago to Puente Alto where we meet the Maipo Valley. We then drive east along this fertile valley where we will observe many native plant and trees. As we ascend we will see how the valley changes into a gorge surrounded by high peaks.

We continue to the town of San Jose de Maipo where we stop. This town, which has a beautiful plaza de Armas and church, still maintains a provincial character despite the distance from Santiago. Following our stop, we pass the village of San Alfonso and San Gabriel where we meet the Yeso River. We continue through beautiful mountain scenery until we reach the Yeso Reservoir located at an altitude of 3,000 m. The views of the lake are very spectacular, this reservoir is very popular among bird watchers, as this is the habitat of many species, among them the rare Sandpiper Plover. Return to the valley where we will have a BBQ lunch prepared by your guide and driver. We have time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery before we return to Santiago.

Price per person £78.00 ( including picnic lunch and private transportation)
