Meadows filled with wild herbs, gushing streams, towering mountains and an enormous hanging glacier. Cyprus, pine and eucalyptus trees aromas fill the air. 25 km from the city, the Yerba Loca sanctuary is the perfect antidote to Santiago life. Pitch your tent right next to the loudly roaring Yerba Loca torrent, for the ultimate nature experience or paddle in the stream’s icy waters which originate from 3,900 meters above sea level, in the foothills of La Paloma Mountain. Mmmhhh I love it.
