Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine National Park was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1978. The park features mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers, with the Cordillera del Paine as the centerpiece. This eastern spur of the Andes is located on the east side of the Grey Glacier, rising dramatically above the Patagonian steppe. Small valleys separate the spectacular granite spires and mountains of the massif. The national park is a popular hiking destination. There are clearly marked paths and many refuges which provide shelter and basic services. Views are breathtaking. Hikers can opt for a day trip to see the towers, walk the popular "W" route in about five days, or trek the full circle in 8-9 days. Hikers are not allowed to stray from the paths. Camping is only allowed at specified campsites, and wood fires are prohibited.
