Trekking in Torres del Paine

Trekking in Torres del Paine

There are a couple of ways to explore this part of the world. One is to do a 10 day circuit route which requires camping. I saw some of the camp sites. Really grim cold, dank crowded quite uninspired places. I’m so very glad I choose a different method. Another way is to do a day trip from town and hike up to the towers (Torres) and back. Not a bad option but – well you all know me – I need more adventure than that. So the option I chose was a five day trek staying in Refugio’s each night. We hiked about 75 Kms very little of which was on level ground. It was a pretty easy trip and our weather amazingly dry and warm. The scenery – well if you like mountain and lakes and views like this – it was stupendous!
