"You should do at least some of..." Chile Favorite Tip by richiecdisc

Chile General: 99 reviews and 82 photos


Favorite thing: You should do at least some of the the ciruit around Torres del Paine. If your time is short or you are inexperienced you can do what they call the W where you can stay in hostel type refugios instead of lugging a tent and stove around. The back of the circuit is much less traveled and you will see more wildlife, but the scenery on the W is justifiably popular. If your time is very short, I'd say to do a day hike to the view point of Los Cuernos and pray for clear weather. If you get it, consider yourself very lucky! The actual Torres del Paine are spectacular as well and worth the the arduous hike up to them. Even in the pissing rain.

Fondest memory: Sliding down on my butt in the snow after the climb of Villarica on my birthday. The weather sucked, but the slide down was really a blast!
