Maipu Mountain Trek and Hot Springs

After living the cosmopolitan fast pace of the city it was time to stretch our legs and get back to nature with a hike in the Maipu mountains. Although I refer to it as a hike our footwear and clothing attire did reveal we aren’t much of hikers so I think our tour guide went easy on our trail. Walking through the mountains and looking in every direction at the beautiful scenery Frenchie and I felt the need to sing every song from the Sound of Music.

Interesting fact its not the snakes and spiders that are deadly over here it’s the rats that you have to be aware of.

After the hike it was time to relax and enjoy the Hot Springs. The Hot Springs had about 6-8 pools all at different temperatures with the one at the very top reaching 36 degrees. It was hot but great once you acclimatised.
