There are two great things about living in a city surrounded by mountains: the beautiful mountain views you get and the fact that you can climb them!
This weekend was (another) long weekend so we took to the mountains to explore. Yerba Loca is a park that is about an hours drive from central Santiago. It wasn’t a place that I had heard much of, but I now want to tell everyone about it. It was so beautiful.
We got there early on Saturday morning to ensure that we could get a camping spot. And I was already blown away. The camping had the most beautiful view of the snow capped mountains and the sun was beaming too! I think this is the best tent view yet!After setting up our tent we set off to reach Refugio Aleman, which is a 3-4 hour trek. It was deserted as we only saw two other people doing the trek. Meaning these beautiful views were all for ourselves, but they were just too good not to share. At 2500 mts up, it was pretty special!
The mountains really were looking spectacular thanks to the rain earlier in the week: rain is always good news as it means it snows in the mountains.There is something about snow capped mountains paired with blue sky that just makes the absolute perfect combination! Until next time, Yerba Loca…There is a two day trek in the park where you get to see a glacier, and I think that may have just been added to our list! 🙂
