El Yeso Dam (Embalse El Yeso) Tours

Located in San Jose de Maipo outside of the Chilean capital, El Yeso Dam (Embalse El Yeso) dammed the Yeso River to create a lovely turquoise reservoir that can hold more than 253 million cubic meters of water. While only 60 miles (98 kilometers) outside of Santiago, El Yeso Dam feels very remote. The views across the reservoir to the snow-capped mountains in the distance rank among the best in the Chilean Andes.

While the El Yeso reservoir provides drinking water to residents of Santiago, it also serves more recreational purposes. Residents and tourists alike head to the turquoise waters for sport fishing, windsurfing or picnicking on the banks.

Practical Info

El Yeso Dam is located along Rouge G-25 between Santiago and San Gabriel.
