This viewpoint located in the area known as Cajón del Maipo is a very popular destination for condor watching, as its name implies. The route is not very difficult and allows you to enjoy a day in nature surrounded by landscapes of valleys and mountains. Spring is considered the best time to visit, due to the intermediate temperatures. In any case, it is possible to enjoy it throughout the year, taking into account that in winter the climate in the area is a bit more unpredictable and windy.Show more

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
