5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This was an amazing hike. I was not prepared for the level of difficulty. This hike involves scrambling up a very steep and rocky trail to an elevation of about 3600 kilometers. I highly recommend using the hiking poles which are provided. Wear comfortable clothes and good hiking shoes.

This is a must tour. We loved it and it was our favourite tour we did during our stay in Santiago. We visited the ski resort of Valle Nevado and then did a small walk in the snow to a brilliant look out where we enjoyed a bottle of Chilean red, some cheese and crackers and a few nibbles. The view was AMAZING. Thank you to Nicholas who was our exceptional tour guide for the day. He looked after us and was very informative. We enjoyed the day immensely.

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2015

Pros: The views were breathtaking along the way and especially at the top. On one side, you can see the beautiful Andes and on the other side the entire city of Santiago. Also, our guide was great. He was very informative and professional. Snacks, water, and trekking poles were provided to us. Very personalized service. It was just me and my husband, which was great. We were picked up from our AirBnB right on time.
Cons: I don't think the hike description captures how difficult this hike is. I would describe it as extraneous and somewhat dangerous. And I am saying this as someone who hikes on a very regular basis. The hike up is very steep. Again, it's beautiful views and worth it but just be prepared that you will exert a lot of effort to get to the top. But that's not even the real issue. The hike back down was a bit terrifying. The trail is essentially composed of dirt and loose rocks. So be prepared to slip a lot and potentially fall. I fell about 5 times, and that's with the aid of trekking poles. That part was kind of stressful and if the description had done a better job of describing the terrain I may have opted for something less challenging while on vacation. But, if you are seeking something quite challenging and not afraid of an adventure then this hike is definitely for you.
