CHILE'S TORRES DEL PAINE 'W' CIRCUIT WALK is one of the best known walks in Chilean Patagonia. This walk takes you through some of Patagonia’s finest wilderness areas. the walk is 58 km long and makes the Patagonian wilderness accessible to the average walker. The scenery: icebergs, glaciers, towering mountains and the famous Torres del Paine (Towers of Paine) make this a wonderful walking holiday.
The trail begins at Lago Grey and continues along the lake and up the Vallee Frances before continuing to the Chileno Valley and the Torres del Paine (Towers of Paine).
The Torres del Paine National Park is one of the most spectacular national parks in Chile.”Its beautiful setting amongst snow-capped mountain peaks, cascading rivers and waterfalls, glaciers and mirrored lakes has made it an attractive destination for hikers and backpackers, ecology-lovers and adventure sportsmen and women. There are clearly marked paths and many refugios which provide food, shelter and basic services. The views in the park are outstanding. Walkers can choose between a day trip to see the Paine Towers, walk the popular "W" route in about five days, or trek the full Paine Circuit in 8–9 days.
This Companion Guide will help prepare you for your own W walk. lots of Information. WALK Torres del Paine includes:
Camping is only allowed at specified campsites and wood fires are prohibited throughout the park. Many walkers choose a self-guided package which includes transfers to and from Puerto Natales and catered accommodation at refuges in the park.
Our companion ebook will take you on a day by day guide through the walking journey from the moment you arrive in Punta Arenas, the capital city of Chile's southernmost region, Magallanes and Antartica Chilena.
The information and pictures have given me a good idea of what to expect on the walk.
