A bit of a drive to get to but the scenery and beauty of the mountains and the reservoir were amazing. Our picnic lunch set up for us by our guide was really special right on the edge of the reservoir. It's definitely a whole day and well worth it.

Patricio es un guía excelente que conoce no sólo el área y el terreno, sino su historia. Muy amable y conversador, nos mantuvo informados durante todo el viaje. El paisaje alrededor del embalse es impresionante, y da una sensación de paz que te hace querer volver cada vez que lo recuerdas. El picnic fue muy agradable Vino a las 10:00 am? Claro que sí!, y la comida variada y más que suficiente. En el camino de vuelta hicimos varias paradas para admirar distintos paisajes. En fin, fue una experiencia enriquecedora, y si yo regresara a Santiago, lo volvería a hacer!


Patricio is an excellent guide who not only knows the area and the terrain, but its history. Very friendly and chatty, he kept us informed throughout the trip. The landscape around the reservoir is impressive, and gives a sense of peace that makes you want to come back whenever you remember it. The picnic was very nice Wine at 10:00 am? Of course!, And the food varied and more than enough. On the way back we made several stops to admire different landscapes. In short, it was an enriching experience, and if I return to Santiago, I'do it again!
