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

The trail starts at La Cabrería and goes around El Morro towards the west, and after half an hour it opens onto a large valley, known as the La Engorda Valley, with meadows that are sometimes used as pastures. Continuing east through the Estero de la Engorda that is crossed after an hour of walking. When the valley begins to twist slightly to the south, the trail veers to the left and goes up a subsidiary valley that falls from the east. It is green and brings a visible stream. Above it is the Plantat (3480 m), a refuge built in 1937.Show more
