Itinerary

Departure from Puerto Natales at 07:00 am and direct transfer to Las Torres sector where we will arrive at “Reserva Cerro Paine”, starting point of the trail.

There we will receive a previous instructive talk from our guide. We take the road towards the Valley and after 10 minutes of walking, we will walk over an old hanging bridge that crosses the Ascencio River.

About 150 meters ahead, a fork appears: on the left it leads to Las Torres Base. Then it follows a zigzag of marked slope and scarce vegetation for one hour. The ascent continues and you pass by another slope and after 45 minutes you reach the Chilean Campsite on the opposite bank of the Ascencio River, in the shade of a lenga forest, with a moderate slope, crossing several slopes that fall from Almirante Nieto.

After about an hour and 10 minutes from the Chilean campsite, at 700 m.a.s.l., you reach the foot of the moraine that gives access to the viewpoint.

From this point, the trail increases its slope. First, it goes along a slope and under the shade of the small trees located on the edge of the moraine, but further up the trail gets lost as such and it must be continued climbing among the rocks, some of which are marked to show the route. After about half an hour from the sign at 700 meters above sea level, you will reach the eastern end of the lake, from where you have a wonderful view of the three towers (Central, Monzino, Dagostini) and the Peineta and Nido de Cóndores hills.

After resting and having lunch in this extraordinary and unique scenic context in the planet, we start our return along the same path until we reach the starting point, where our driver will be waiting to return to Puerto Natales at the end of the day.

Attend a Briefing before the day of the tour, at 7:00 p.m. at Hotel Casa de la Patagonia, located at Bulnes 407 (corner Ignacio Carrera Pinto), Puerto Natales
