7 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec




I have the pleasure of inviting you to share a week of alpine climbing in Cerro Trinidad. This mountain is located south of Chile in the province of Llanquihue. In the beautiful Region de los Lagos we will find the village of Cochamó, our trail head. Along its valley you will witness the endless granite walls of more than 1000 meters high that surround Cerro Trinidad, which is one of the main peaks in the area.

To get to the base of Cerro Trinidad we will need 2 days of intense hike. If you wish, you can hire a mule to lighten the weight of the backpack and fully enjoy the adventure. By the third day we will arrive at the foot of this impressive and monolithic mountain. From there, we will start the 400 meter climb, which involves a moderate to hard technical difficulty. Once we conquer the top of this wall, we will walk down via a gutter to the north of the mountain.

It will be necessary to have a good physical condition and some basic alpine climbing techniques. The best period to enjoy the rock of Cerro Trinidad is from November till March.

Want to come to the Cochamó Valle and try some alpine climbing? So fill out the form and send your request now! I’ll be waiting for your message.

About the guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.

Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.

My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!

The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.

The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.

I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.
