Pick up at your hotel in Puerto Natales at 9:00 AM
At the moment of entering the park through the Sarmiento Lake porter’s lodge, we will start our path with a gentle slope with lateral view of the imposing Sarmiento Lake adjoining private lands, habitual hunting area for the biggest predator of the region, the Puma. This species finds in Torres del Paine its main source of food, the Guanaco.
After an hour’s walk we will reach a eave where it is possible to observe a series of cave paintings dating back over 6,000 years, a place frequented by groups of hunters known as one of the first populations that arrived in Patagonia. In this site we will be able to photograph the environment and to know a little more of the local history. The activity continues in the direction of Laguna Blanquillos, nesting site and feeding of different species of endemic birds of Patagonia such as ducks, caiquenes and black-necked swans always with a frontal view towards the Paine mountain range.
After 3 hours of walking we will arrive at the main access to Torres del Paine National Park: Laguna Amarga porter’s lodge.
After a stop for the use of services we will return to the vehicle to go to a little-known area where the milky waters of the Paine River from the Dickson Glacier increase their flow with a great concentration of minerals and sediments, we refer to the Paine Waterfall.
In this place we will have free time to enjoy our box lunch with a frontal view towards the granite towers among ñirre bushes. The journey continues to Cañadón Macho, an area where it is possible to observe large groups of guanacos that coexist with species such as the Ñandú, Gray Fox, Condor, Mora Eagle among others.
Return to Puerto Natales around 6:00 PM.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes, sunglasses, sunscreen and gloves.
