Base Torres is the iconic excursion of Torres del Paine National Park, a magical place where one can appreciate the imposing granite formations which contrast with extraordinary mountains and unique landscapes. The three horn-shaped peaks called Cuernos del Paine offer a moment of contemplation. We shall depart early from Puerto Natales to Hotel Las Torres, where we will begin trekking throughout the valley of Ascencio. After two hours we will arrive at the Chilean base camp where we will recover energies. On the way through the path we will go deep into an ancient forest of beech and will start our last ascent with an important steep slope. After having walked for about four hours, we will arrive at this magical place, the base and the viewpoint of the three granite towers, where we will have lunch and will recover energies to start descending the same path. After no more than three and a half hours we will take our Jeep to come back to Puerto Natales.
