Day 3: Puerto Natales – Full day to the Base of the Towers
Enjoy a delicious breakfast at Factoría hostel before your 7:00 am pick up to go straight to Torres del Paine National Park, where we will arrive at the Cerro Paine Reserve, departure point of the trail and the beginning of our adventure.
We will walk towards the Ascencio Valley as it snakes through windswept hills and gigantic forests. During the last ascent, we will traverse through an immense boulder field until we reach the Chileno refuge, 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 mount, which is part of the Paine Massif.
After about an hour and 10 minutes from the Chileno campsite, at 900 m.a.s.l.m., we will reach the foot of the moraine that gives access to the viewpoint. From this point, the trail increases its slope. After about half an hour from the sign, at 700 m.a.s.l.m., we will reach the east end of the lagoon, from where you have a wonderful view of the three towers (Central, Monzino and Dagostini) and the Peineta and Nido de Cóndores hills. After resting and having lunch in this extraordinary and unique scenic context on the planet, we will begin our return along the same path until we reach the starting point, to return to Puerto Natales.
