Full-day trekking to the base of Paine towers


Day 1
Full-day trekking to the base of Paine towers

We will leave Puerto Natales and head north towards the Torres del Paine National Park. After a 2-hour trip, we will reach the Estancia Torres del Paine, the starting point for our hike. First, our guide will give a short presentation, and then we will begin hiking on the trail that will take us to an old bridge that crosses the Asencio River. After a one-hour hike, we will arrive at the El Chileno Campsite shaded by a breathtaking lenga tree forest, crossing numerous springs cascading from the Almirante Nieto Mountain.

We will make a short stop and then continue on our way to the next lookout point at an altitude of 700 meters (2,297 ft.). From here, the trail will get steeper and a half an hour later we will reach the Las Torres Base from the eastern side of the lagoon. Here we will have a stunning view of the three towers (Central, Monzino, and Dagostini) and the Peineta and Nido de Cóndores Mountains. With this view as our backdrop, we will have some time to rest and eat our box lunch. We will return on the same trail until reaching the starting point, where we will go back to Puerto Natales by vehicle.
