El Plomo 4

Let the local IFMGA guide Eduardo lead you to the Cerro El Plomo in this 5-day mountaineering trip. Once at the summit you'll have the most stunning panoramic view of the entire city of Santiago de Chile as well as the Aconcagua and Tupungato peaks.


5 Days

Jan - Mar, Nov, Dec


The Cerro El Plomo is a mountain which lies in the Metropolitan Region of Santiago de Chile. With an altitude of 5424 meters, it is the highest point visible from the city.

I think it's a perfect opportunity for the enjoyment of a mountaineering tour while you stay very close to the urbanity of the city. However, I have more reasons to invite you to this 5-day adventure:

  • You'll have the chance to climb an antique Inca sanctuary;

  • There are stunning views of the Central Andes and the city of Santiago;

  • It's also a perfect acclimatization before climbing the Ojos del Salado, the Aconcagua or any other high peak.

The Cerro El Plomo is considered a sanctuary where old Inca communities performed ceremonies and sacrifices. It's a very interesting cultural site to visit. Moreover, you can also admire the best views of the mountains while enjoying a great climb to a 5000-meter summit.

Although it is a technically easy tour I recommend to have some basic climbing skills as well as a good physical shape.

I can lead a group of at least 8 people with a maximum of 16. I have some open groups you can join if you are on your own. Departures dates are from November till March.

So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with me so we can discuss and plan your next adventure in Chile!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
