Farellones is a town and ski resort located 36 km from Santiago de Chile, nestled in the Andes mountains and close to other ski resorts such as Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado.
Farellones not only stands out for being a ski center, but also for the archaeological findings made in El Plomo hill. Since before the creation of the town of Farellones, this place was frequented by adventurers and muleteers in search of ancient Inca treasures, as it was common to find remains of settlements in pucarás and pircas. It was thus that an Inca sanctuary was found on this hill, located at a height of between 5,200 and 5,400 meters above sea level, where in 1954 the body of a frozen Inca child was discovered, revealed by the media of the time as the mummy of Lead. The conservation of said "mummy" is in charge of the National Museum of Natural History in Santiago, Chile.
