Valle hermoso

This walk, which requires a good physical condition for the hours spent on the horse (about 6-7 hours in total), allows you to have incredible views over the Malalcura mountain, the Piedras  valley and the Chillán volcano, in addition to passing through different native forest ecosystems.

From the Plaza de San Fabián or your accommodation (8:00 am), we will drive to the starting point of the ride where the horses will be waiting for us with their owner Miguel, local guide-muleteer. We will begin to climb riding through the forest, observing how the vegetation changes as we climb (more than 1000 m of unevenness!). Your guide will make you discover the wonderful native forest of this area and its different species, one of them in danger of extinction (the Luma del Norte, Legrandia concinna). In about 3 hours riding we will reach an old forest of coigües (Nothofagus dombeyi), a place called Valle Hermoso. If the group continues with enough energy to ride, we will continue a little longer until we reach a beautiful viewpoint with views of the Bullileo mountain range and the Chillán volcano, very active at the moment! After a delicious picnic, we will rest talking with the guides, listening to the incredible stories of Miguel, a muleteer guide born and raised in the mountains. Then we will calmly go down to San Fabián..
