Santuario de La Naturaleza Yerba Loca
This nature reserve, just one hour outside Santiago, has picnic and camping areas and small conifer forests. The 14-kilometer pathways lead to the wide Cordillerano Valley and continue on up to the hanging glaciers of La Paloma and El Altar. Abundant bird life is found at all elevations, but those who venture along the higher trails may be rewarded with glimpses of eagles and condors. Although the reserve is open year round, it is best enjoyed during the summer months from December to March. Admission is CPL1,200 for adults and CPL600 for children.

this place was meant to be an outdoor place. however, it was filled with trash all over the ground. cigarettes, cups, papers, plastic and god knows what else littered the ground. i do not suggest going there because the staff was unhelpful and the prices were outrageous! they advertise lots of birds and animals to be seen but the only animals i saw were the swarms of mosquitos eating me. it was a waste of money and i advise everyone not to go there!!!
That's it...just beautiful...totally worth it. I just felt in love with it. All the nature, and the views are great...is also really great that it's located so close of the city because you can spend the day in the Santuario and then quickly come back to your hotel...is like a daily trip to paradise
