This viewpoint located in the area known as Cajón del Maipo is a very popular destination for condor watching, as its name implies.

Ideal route for a half of the day hike along the Sendero Hacia Marmolejo reaching more or less up until the Quebrada La Engorda and the fork in the road that continues to the Marmolejo Volcano and the road to the San José Volcano. It's an area worth exploring, the landscape of which will change with the seasons, but it's definitely worth spending time there, whether it's for day hikes or more extensive snow camping experiences.Show more
