Climbing Provincia takes you to 2600 meters in elevation and offers a panoramic view of San Ramon, El Plomo and the Andes as well as the city below. The hike takes some 5 to 6 hours to the top and 4 to 5 on the way down, making it a full day’s work. Spending the night on the peak is also a great option considering the view of the city below. At the top there is a small dome Refugio --just hope that there is room. During springtime it is a popular hike and the space goes quickly. If done in early spring it is cooler and there is still snow, so less water needs to be carried. In summer the hike is very dry and very hot, so bring lots of water and protect yourself from the everpresent sun.
