Trekking in Chile is always an adventure. Mainly, when the weather is typical southern Patagonia, meaning windy and rainy.
So you might end up looking like a little pig, covered with dirt all over you and your clothes.
Of course, the most important thing, when coming back to civilization, would be to find a laundry.
However - get into one of those little bars in the town you are "coming back to" after your trek, and order yourself a Pisco Sour.
Pisco is made of grapes, which are harvested only if the sugar content is high enough. For Pisco Sour, the brandy is mixed with sugar, lime and egg white - to result in a refreshing sour drink - which gives you the feeling that you are really back in civilization :-)
(!! even if it sounds unusual or weird, don't miss the egg white in the mixture - this is what makes Pisco Sour so special).
Fondest memory: To have had a fantastic trekking experience, in the stunning landscape, with the great wild and rough weather - coming back to a little town, and then sit in a small pub, bar or restaurant, being completely dirty - and enjoy Pisco Sour and look out of the window to watch the street life :-))
