Torres del Paine National Park
Named Reserve of the Biosphere in 1978, the Torres del Paine National Park is the third most visited park in Chile. Its green and white landscapes are protected by the government and by UNESCO. It's placed in the Magellan's region and the Chilean Antarctic territory, 240 miles to the north of Punta Arenas and 1550 miles, from Santiago, Chile's capital city.
With almost 3.400 meters of altitude, the Central Tower in Paine is the highest of the three granite peaks, formed by glacier movements, which was escalated for the first time in 1963.
The Park, which is about 2.400 km², has established many ways to access it, refugees, camping places and other services for tourists. Many activities can be practiced here, as well, such as fishing, hiking, excursions, photography, climbing, trekking, walking around and mountain climbing, among other things.
The main attractions inside the Park are Bitter Lagoon (Laguna Amarga) and the lakes Grey and Pehoe, both of which have a magnificent view of the Towers and the glaciers. They also leave pieces of ice fall into the lakes below them, a wonderful postcard to remember.
