Trekking to Torres del Paine Base
Full day - per person in double room - Code EPS014
Departure from Puerto Natales at 07:00 am and direct transfer to the Las Torres area, where we will get to Cerro Paine Ranch, starting point of the trail, where we will receive a prior lecture with the guide.
We will take the road heading to the Valley and after a 10-minute walking, we will pass by an old hanging bridge that crosses the Ascencio River. Over 150 meters forward, a fork appears: the left road leads us to the Base of the towers.
Then we will continue through a zigzag trail with a high slope and surrounded by an isolated landscape during one hour. We will continuig our ascension, and we will pass another watershed, and the Camping Chileno will be located on the opposite bank of the Ascencio River, in the shadow of a lenga tree forest, with moderate slopes falling from Almirante Nieto. After nearly one hour and 10 minutes from the Chileno Campsite, 700 meters away, we will reach the foothill of the moraine giving access to the viewpoint. From this point, the slope will be higher. First the path goes next to a watershed and in the shadows of small trees located on the edge of the Moraine, but further up the trail will be lost and we will continue to climb among the rocks, some of which are marked to show the route.
After over half hour from the 700 masl sign, we will reach the eastern side of the lagoon, from where we will enjoy an inspiring view of the three towers (Central, Monzino, Dagostini) and of the Peineta and Nido de Cóndores Mountains. After resting and lunching with this extraordinary and unique scenario in the planet, our return will start by the same trail to get to the point of beginning, where our driver will be wainting for us in order to return to Puerto Natales.
