Hike Base of the Towers
This is one of the highlights in our list. Our day Starts at 8am to departure to the Torres del Paine National Park; where we start the trekking. The hike begins through the Ascencio Valley until we arrive to the Chilean Refuge one hour and 30 minutes later. After a little break, we continue through a beautiful Nothofagus forest for another hour and a half, and then we reach the last and most difficult part, the moraine with big stone boulders that will allow us, after one more hour, to reach the famous Base of The Towers lookout point, above a beautiful grey color water lagoon. Here we can appreciate in its entire splendor, if the weather allows us, the Torres del Paine; which are formations of huge granite monoliths originated by the outcrop of a laccolite igneous rock, which over time have suffered different natural erosions, like glaciers and the famous strong winds of Patagonia.
Here we take a break and have lunch, contemplating the three granite giants. Then begins the way back through the same path, to get to the vehicle and return to your Accommodations around 20:00 pm.
