TORRES DEL PAINE : SUGGESTED ROUTE B
As you can imagine, there are many ways of doing the hike, it really depends on the number of days you can afford, your fitness and interests.
Naturally, if you have injured yourself, you should try to head to CAMP PEHOE, which is your best bet to get help to head back.
DAY 1 : Do not camp at CAMP LAS TORRES. Hike with your main backpack all the way to either CAMP CHILENO or, if you can endure longer, to CAMP TORRES about 1.5 hours more.
DAY 2 : Staying the night at CAMP CHILENO or CAMP TORRES will give you the chance to hike up to LAS TORRES early in the morning when the morning sun directly spotlights LAS TORRES. Truly a magnificent view!
But this means, that you either spend today, hiking down with your gear to camp at CAMP LAS TORRES.
Or, you can hike down and do everything in ROUTE A / DAY 2 to reach CAMP ITALIANO.
This is possible during summer when the days are longer and if you are very fit and have high endurance.
DAY 3 : If your last camp was CAMP LAS TORRES, do the same as ROUTE A / DAY 2.
If you last camp was CAMP ITALIANO, REST today. You deserve it after the very tough hike yesterday. This camp-site is great, anyway.
DAY 4 : Same as ROUTE A / DAY 3.
DAY 5 : Hike the easy route to CAMP PEHOE and endure all the way to CAMP GREY, by the terminal face of GLACIER GREY or CAMP LOS GUARDAS, some 2 hours north.
DAY 6 : An early morning rise to see the royal blue of the glacier. Should be amazing!! Then, head down to CAMP PEHOE.
DAY 7 : Hike south around Lago Pehoe to CAMP LAS CARRETAS for the night.
DAY 8 : Head to SEDE ADMINISTRATIVA for the bus-ride back to Puerto Natales.
Remember : Listen to your body. Do what your physical fitness allows. This is NOT an expedition. This is NOT a competition. This is NOT an ego-race.
Its blue emerald or plomizo green color gives account of the virgins of its waters. The color of the water is because it comes from glaciers and the minerals contained give that color him
Su azul esmeralda o verde plomizo dan cuenta de lo vírgenes de sus aguas. El color del agua es debido a que viene de glaciares y los minerales contenidos le dan ese color
