Description
Itinerary

Includes

This natural sanctuary is located in the Andes mountain range, 1 hour from Santiago. It is a typical Andean valley,  with impressive summits and eternal hanging glaciers. Here you can find an ecosystem dominated by scrub vegetation, that holds a diverse fauna of mammals, birds and reptiles. You will enjoy the incredible views inside of the valley, which is crossed by the beautiful Yerba Loca river.
The puma, the El Puma, the bobcat, and the culpeo fox, are the main predators here.  It is also possible to observe a great variety of raptors, among which we can mention the condor, the eagle and the hawks.  Besides you can watch one of the smallest birds in the world, the cordilleran hummingbird.
