I will be moving to Chili for four months as a volunteer English teacher and will be starting the trip in Santiago for an orientation week. I love hiking and capturing views of cities from above. What is the best hike that can be done from Santiago in a day to get the most impressive views of the city? Any recommended routes would be appreciated.

The classic is the top of the Cerro San Cristobal. But there are great views from any tall building. You will probably be here for when the Andes get their first snow. It is quite a spectacle.

P.S. Get the spelling right: C_H_I_L_E. Don't confuse us with a hot pepper!
