I will take you to the Cerro Manquehuito, the most famous mountain in Santiago. This hike takes around 1 hour to the summit, where you will have the best view of the city! We'll stay at the summit about 30 minutes and then walk down to the starting point. The activity last about 2 hours.

My name is François, I'm 50% french and 50% chilean. I used to work in a big winery and decided to quit my job and follow my passion: sports and mountains. I have always practiced sports, until a few years ago I was a Javelin Thrower competing for Chile all over the world. Now I enjoy hiking, mountain bike and yoga. Today I invite you to hike to my favourite place in the city. I have different hikes for everybody, from easy with great views, to half day hikes with waterfalls and even more experienced hikes over 2800 meters high!

Already in the meeting point there is an incredible view of the city, and while we go up we can stop in different places to enjoy the nature and take pictures. The summit is the perfect place to relax, eat and take the best picture to the city!
