The adventure begins at 7:30 am over the steppe until you reach Torres del Paine Massif, a 120-million year old granite and sedimentary formation.
The first third of the hike is a steep and constant climb until you reach the passage of the winds. This is the entrance to Valle Ascencio where you will continue on a soft slope down to Refugio Chileno located alongside a homonymous river that flows to the valley. Over the next stage of the hike we will follow along the river’s edge through the forest where you will get peeks of the mountains with its glaciers. Campamento Torres will be waiting for us.
The last stage is a climb climbed up the morrena to one of the most visited and beautiful lookouts that the Patagonia has.
