Universidad Glacier – the largest ice zone in Central Chile

Glacier Universidad Colchagua is located in the Andes Mountains. It is connected to several other glaciers, together forming the largest ice zone in Central Chile and the largest in the country after the Patagonian ice fields.

The Universidad glacier is located in the O’Higgins region, 55 km east of San Fernando. Its moraine gives rise to a short tributary river of the Tinguiririca River. It is surrounded by mountain peaks such as Portillo and Alto de los Arrieros and El Palomo volcano.

It is a splendid hike along the initial stretch of the glacier field up to the viewpoint of the Mañque Glacier.

The ascent of the volcano can be made all year round, but from September to February, conditions are usually more favourable on the sector’s routes.
