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
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.
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
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.
