Travel Photo – Torres Del Paine, Chile – Full Circuit Trek

Torres del Paine National Park (Parque Nacional Torres del Paine) is a national park encompassing a mountains, glacier, lake, and river-rich areas in southern Chilean Patagonia. The national park (598.593,02 acres) is a 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. It is a national park and thus hikers are not allowed to stray from the paths. Camping is only allowed at specified campsites and wood fires are prohibited throughout the park. – Wikipedia

Awesome photos – brought me back soem wonderful memories! I can almost smell that fresh air coming right off the peaks. I think my favorite part of Torres del Paine was hiking and just stooping down at any stream and drinking the pure water!

Did you get good weather? I tried to do full circuit last year but it rained for 4 days straight (there was even a snow storm!). It was the middle of Patagonian summer, but I guess you can never be sure about the weather in this part of the world.
Torres del Paine is one of the places I really want to go back to.

Jason says:

We did get really lucky with the weather. And I say lucky because it can change rapidly in that park. It was freezing and rained the first two days. After that, the weather slowly improved each day, leading up to a wonderful day at the towers.

Beautiful, Patagonia is on my list of places to travel to in 2011.
