a.m. on Route 9 north (private transfer) arriving in a 2 hours trip to Laguna Amarga (Bitter Lagoon), National Park Torres del Paine , we finally stop at Las Torres Hostel that is the starting point for the most trips of this world biosphere reserve.
We leave the car at the beginning of the path, beginning a medium difficulty hike that lasts approx. 7 to 8 hrs. in total, which will take us to the base of the three towers of granite “Torres del Payne”. During this journey through Ascencio Valley , we walk for 3 hours approx. on a path of relatively easy ups and downs, to the Torres camp , where the trail continues up a steep slope with rock steps, for approximately one hour, to reach the base of the three towers rising vertically 1000 m, right across from a small lagoon glacier. There we’ll rest contemplating the imposing towers, along with a hot drink. Then we return by the same path back to the van.
We’ll get back to Puerto Natales approximately 9:00 p.m.
