The trek to the Base of Las Torres is the more traditional trek. The path runs through the valley of the Rio Ascencio to the base of Torres del Paine. We will cross with the vehicle on the narrow bridge across the Rio Paine to reach the Hosteria Las Torres, where we leave the vehicle and begin the walk, cross a hanging bridge and climb the slopes of the Almirante Nieto Mount, bordering the Ascencio River.

After 1 hour of trekking in ascension we arrive to the valley itself and arrive at the shelter Chileno, where we will stop to rest. From that point the trail continues through forest, with unforgettable landscapes brings us to the base of Las Torres.


From there, begin to ascend the moraine (rock crushed by glaciers), this is perhaps the most difficult part of the journey as takes approximately one hour to arrive to the mirador of Las Torres. This is clearly the most breathtaking natural amphitheater of Patagonia, at the base of the imposing and vertical granite towers that reach 2800 mts in height, projecting from the turquoise lagoon.


The total length of this trek demands about 4 hours to climb and about 3 hours to descend, the trekking is quite exigeant and requires an acceptable physical condition, although is not technically difficult. It is recommended for people aged between 15 to 60 years. The walk can be done in the company of one of our mountain guides, either walking alone or if you have some experience in this type of activity.

We propose you a Full Day excursion from El Calafate or a 2-day trip with a night in the park. We can also organize it from Puerto Natales. The transfers can be in private or regular.
