Without any doubt the heart of Torres del Paine National Park is Valle del Francés. It is situated between the three granite towers and Paine Grande, where the glaciers have shaped the rock and have created this astonishing geological gem. At dawn we will head for the area of Pudeto, where we will take the catamaran to cross Lago Pehoe. During the voyage we will manage to see impressive views of the three horn-shaped peaks, then thirty minutes later we will dock at Muelle del Paine Grande, where we will begin trekking to the Italian campsite, the entrance of Valle del Francés. The path becomes more difficult to follow due to its steep slope or inclination and then, after making the last effort, we will be able to reach the plateau to contemplate the formations and glaciers. Magnificent viewpoint, one of the most stunning at PNTP (Torres del Paine National Park), in this place we will enjoy some lunch to get our strength back in order to return at a quick pace to board the catamaran again and come back to our Jeep.
