The first day we started our trip leaving from Santiago to the sector of Farellones. At that point our muleteer will be waiting with the horses and mules necessary to take us and move all the camping equipment, meals and our personal belongings. A safety chat will be held to have a safe trip without accidents. Then we started our ride to the base of El Plomo hill, the most important mountain in the central valley and possible to see from Santiago because with its 5.500 meters, its great glacier catches the attention of anyone. First stop, after 1 hour of horseback riding, lagoon of Piuquenes.
