National Park Torres del Paine

 

 

The national park Torres del Paine is  well know all around the glove as  the  popular hiking destination in Chile. There are clearly marked paths and many refugios 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 in the national park. Camping is only allowed at specified campsites and wood fires are prohibited throughout the park.Visiting the park is recommended between  December and late March, during our summer. Not only is the weather is much better , but daylight hours are very long given the extreme southern latitude.
