Exploring Patagonia - Southern Chile - Torres del Paine National Park

Torres del Paine is Chile's most southern National Park, at least the largest, most southern, it is a must on your bragging rights list.

It spans 242242 hectares, for Chile that is quite a lot, it is located way south on the 50th parallel and is visited mostly by wealthy foreigners. If you continue 300 clicks south you will reach Punta Arenas and Puerto Williams which are Chile's most southern cities located in Tierra del fuego.

"Torres del Paine" sits on the other side of the border parallel with "Los Glaciares"in Argentina.
no need to say that the scenery is breathtaking. You can spend from 3 days to a week in the Park and still leave some spots behind.

The entrance fee for non Chileans is around around $35 American, but will last you for the whole stay. The lodgings in the Park range from expensive Hotels to basic campgrounds with all the basic amenities.
