EL MORADO NATURAL MONUMENT

SANTIAGO DE CHILE

-El Morado Natural Monument

Located 93 kilometers southeast of Santiago, along the Maipo canyon, with a total surface area of 3,009 hectares, may be found this protected area, including the Rio Morales canyon and the nearby mountains, in the middle of the Andes Cordillera.

Due to weather conditions the park will remain closed between May and September. The best months for visiting it by day or camping are between December and March.

Among the mountains surrounding the canyon, the El Morado is the highest, at 5,060 meters above sea level. Its unmistakable profile overlooks the park. The fauna in the Reserve is rich in bird species, and one frequently sees finches, Sierra-finches, chirihue dorados, black finches, Cordillera finches, tencas, thrushes, Chilean swallows, ochre-naped ground-tyrants, tapaculos, ibises and mineros ("mining birds").

Also commonly found are the giant hummingbirds, white-sided hillstars, turtledoves), Cordillera turtledoves, perdicitas ("miniature partridges") and cojon partridges. In the aquatic environments may be seen the juarjual duck, whose population is gradually increasing.

The flora consists mostly of Andean sclerophilous shrubland, but in the lower areas of the park are also found olivillo de la cordillera, hierba blanca and cola de zorro (foxtail), among other plant species.

The special places in the park are Lake El Morado and San Francisco glacier, that can be observed after a walk of at least 2 hours.

The park offers multiple activities such as:

- Horse riding in different beauty spots.
