Photo of the Day: Nature in Torres del Paine Patagonia

| Taken by Aracely | 3 Comments » | Photo of the Day

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

    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.

      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.
