#7 of 11 in Nature in Santiago
Mountain · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Cerro Provincia is a mountain on the eastern side of Santiago, Chile. It is a popular climb due to its accessibility and low level of difficulty by mountaineering standards (an 'F' or 'easy' on the Alpine scale). The peak has an altitude of 2,750 metres (9,022 ft) and a climb requires an altitude gain of almost 2000 meters from the highest road-accessible point. There is a small dome-shaped refuge shelter at the summit. There are fairly well traveled paths that go to the summit and marker posts. The peak offers views of Santiago to the west, the Andes to the east, and Cerro El Plomo to the north.

  • A very nice mountain to climb. But very hard. It is not for beginning climbers. But on the top you have an excellent view. And i also saw some condor birds. The biggest in the world. Very happy that.....  more »
  • difficult route for 10-12 hours, height is 2700 meters, but at the top there is a fantastic view of the Cordillera. water must be carried below or in winter you can melt the snow #LetsGuide
  • Great hike from Santiago. Not for the faint hearted. Best time to go is during spring when it's nice and green, not to hot, and not too much snow up the top. Keep an eye on the weather forecast before setting off. If you're up for it, keep going and drop into the Cajon del Maipo (estero la manzana)
