W trek- what direction is better?

by Boleslav

Does anybody have a recomendation whether to start at Hosteria Las Torres and go west or to start at Refugio Grey and go east (due to winds, other challenges?) thank you

RE: W trek- what direction is better?

by Baggio1878

I went from Hostel grey and travelled east. The wind is behind you for the trek.
However when i went in April the weather was awful
I have renamed the park Torres del PAIN!

I'm sure its lovely when the weather is nice- but i didnt see this in 5 days!!

East bound is definitely better. If you hike west bound, on the section from Las Torres to Los Cuernos, the wind and especially the DUST will be in your eyes and face the whole time.

Travel Tips for Puerto Natales

Museum Puerto Bories

by ezaguryk

Industrial Refrigerating complex, founded by the society Exploratory Land of fire, in 1913, and its height, these was the port for of shipment for farm produce from major part of Chilean and Patagonia. It is not miss to go to the museum, you can still see some of the machineries that used in that time, is it impressive the size of the industry, consisted with cameras of freezing, grasser, tannery, conservation of meat and wool laundries and the sober architecture with English style. Two fires destroyed some part of it.

Complejo industrial frigorífico, fundado por la sociedad Exploradora de Tierra de fuego, en el ano 1913, y que en una época de apogeo, fue el puerto de embarque de productor ganaderos de gran parte de las estancias de la patagona. No se pierda ir al museo, todavía quedan las maquinarias que usaban en esa apoca es impresionante el tamaño de la industria, constaba con cámaras de congelación, grasería, curtiembre, conservación de carne y lavanderías de lanas y la arquitectura sobrio y estilo ingles. Dos incendios destruyeron gran parte de la fábrica.

Road trip to Torres del Paine

by vtveen

We got our (Emsa/Avis) car at the hotel and started around 9.00 am for the trip to Torres del Paine National Park. We passed the small airport of Puerto Natales and came on a gravel road; our ‘companion’ for the rest of the day. (Since 2007 there is a 'new' road to the western entrance of the park, which takes about 75 minutes and makes it possible to drive a loop.)

The scenery in Chilean Patagonia is quite different from the Argentinean side: much more trees and bushes, meadows, some hosterias along the road. Not so empty and sometimes oncoming traffic with more or less crazy drivers on this dirt roads.

Cerro Castillo is about halfway between Puerto Natales and the National Park. The settlement is located in the middle of vast and empty plains, where the terrible Patagonian wind was blowing all the time. There is a shop/café and we had a cup of coffee. Don’t expect ‘French cuisine’ and good coffees in the middle of nowhere.

After Cerro Castillo the landscape is getting more and more impressive with the mountains of Torres coming closer and closer and the steppe starting next to the road. Lago Sarmiento was the first lake with its turquois coloured water and the Torres del Paine in the background. Really fantastic scenery.

After about 115 km’s we reached the entry gate at Lago Sarmiento and had to pay the entrance fee of 10.000 pesos per person.

After our visit to the park we returned at 7.30 pm in Puerto Natales and had driven 340 km's through really unbelievable scenery !! We still regret not having stayed one or two days IN the park.

Lago Nordenskjold

by jsepulve

This is a beautiful milky-blue lake. It has this color because it is water from a glacier. This is the beautiful view that you get to enjoy on the 4 hour hike from Hosteria Las Torres to Refugio y Camping Los Cuernos. It isn't too bad, but the last part of the hike gets somewhat hard and my feet were hurting a lot torwards the end.

Glacier Balmaceda

by vtveen

We were not aware of it, but when we left Puerto Natales on the ‘Alberto de Agostini’ we already could see this glacier. Due to the clear air it seemed if the glacier and the surrounding mountains were rather close, but it took about 3 hours sailing before we reached the bay in front of the Balmaceda Glacier.

Ahead of us was the Balmaceda Mountain range with the top of Balmaceda at 2.035 metres and the glacier tumbling down the slope almost into the sea. This glacier is also on retreat (as all glaciers) and it is interesting (or better alarming) to know that 15 years ago the foot of the glacier was still at sea level.

The boat came rather close to the mainland and we could see the crevasses, peaks and ‘coloured’ ice. And we were lucky with the weather, because even the top of the mountain and the whole glacier were (temporary) visible. The only way to see this glacier is by boat on the trip with ‘Turismo 21 de Mayo’.

Trekking anybody?

by axelle

Been there twice... It is beautiful and really the Circuit in the Paine is not that much harder than the W, plus it offers fantastic views on the Torres and the Cuernos. I did it twice, first time counter-clock, second time clockwise, and would chose the second option by far were I to head over there again.
