Exploring the Andes

One of the best things about living in Santiago, is that you're only a couple hours from either the beach or the mountains. From the city there are lots of little hills and mountains in walking distance or a short bus ride away that we like to escape to on the weekends. One of the best areas to go hiking from Santiago is Cajon del Maipo. 

From the end of Line 4 on the metro, you can catch a bus that follows a river up into the mountains, surrounded by beautiful views of the Chilean countryside as you draw nearer to the Andes.
