Trek to the Volcano
Another mandatory excursion is a trekking tour to the summit of the Chillán Volcano.
From the base of the great hotel, visitors must take one of the chairlifts leaving practically from inside the hotel to the various ski trails and then start a 2-and-a-half-hour hike to the summit of this beautiful geographical feature in the company of a guide.
As they hike along the trail, they may appreciate the highest peaks of the Andes Mountain Range and be surprised at the flight of large birds such as eagles and condors.
Likewise, in a much more earthly environment, it is possible to come across cougars, foxes and hares, whose presence is generally discovered due to their footprints both on the ground and on the snow.
A few meters before reaching the summit, visitors may enjoy a unique majestic scenery and panoramic view.
To the left, the fumaroles continue showing the vestiges of the heat flowing from the core of the Earth which man will never fully understand. The charm of Mother Nature rests upon this.
