"Dont go in summer" Torres del Paine Things to Do Tip by the___gecko

Torres del Paine Things to Do: 31 reviews and 104 photos

Despite everyone saying summer is the best time, I believe it is not.

I was there mid march and still found that there were to many people on the trek. Not so much the full circuit but the W.

I can only imagine its 5 times worse in the warmer months.

So wait till mid March at least and if you dont mind the cold it may be worth waiting till early April.

I dont think the circuit opens in November so its not a good time to go then either unless you want to do the W only.
