Enjoy a route filled with Andes views and flora and fauna typical of the high mountain range. Walk from the El Yeso reservoir to the viewpoints of the Marmelejo Mountain, considered the most southern 6K in the world.
We head for the Lagunillas ski centre, located at 2.200 Mt. There we start our walk on a soft slope which, after 30 minutes, will lead us to a beautiful plateau at 2.425 Mt. This is a mandatory resting point to take in the impressive view of the San Lorenzo hill. From here on forward, we start climbing a bit higher until we reach the summit of Morro Bayo (2.665 Mt), the highest point we will reach on this walk. Here we will be able to witness and appreciate different types of mountain birds and the beautiful summits of the region.
