On the other side of the hill, you can see the eastern part of the city: Las Condes, Providencia and Vitacura. Notice that there is still some snow left on the mountains at the back. And it was 32 degrees that day...
The snow covered mountain on the back is the Cerro El Plomo, which is over 6.000 metres high. That's one of the highest points that you can see from Santiago.
The Estadio Nacional, our biggest football stadium.
This is where I work right now, in the area known as "El Golf" in Las Condes
And that's where I'll be working in a month or so.
On my back, the highest hill is the Cerro Manquehue. It's the highest hill on Vitacura, and it's has some good hiking trails. It separates Vitacura from Huechuraba and Chicureo.
A popular way to climb the Cerro San Cristobal is on the "teleferico". This small hubs take you from Pedro de Valdivia to the the Virgin Mary, allowing the best viewpoints of Santiago.
If you're coming over during the winter, take the teleferico after a day of rain. You'll never see Santiago as beautiful as that day: snowy mountains, clear skies and no smog.
Up to 4 adults can go inside a hub.
