TORRES DEL PAINE

ATTRACTIONS

Unbounded nature. Landscapes compelling infinite admiration. Changing scenes ranging from pampas to forests and from plains to heights. All within a single area: Torres del Paine, probably the most beautiful place in Chilean Patagonia, charming its visitors and generating ever-lasting memories in them.

Among these magnificent skyward-reaching rock formations, the main attractions are:

French Glacier Puerto Natales Chile Travel -Puerto Natales.
This is the main access point to Torres del Paine. Its name has its origin in the Latin term "natalis", meaning birth. The city, which has over 19 thousand inhabitants, was founded in 1911. In its beginnings, the area was inhabited by English and German colonists, who worked mainly as cattle farmers. The city offers a varied number of tourist options, which go from skiing sessions in Rio Turbio (in winter), to sailing tours to the glaciers of Balmaceda and Serrano mountains and the Seven Glaciers, located in the De las Montañas channel.

-Torres del Paine National Park.
. It is an area dominated by nature. There are impressive pampas, Magellanic forests, peaceful lakes such as Nordenskjold, Pehoe de Grey, Paine and Dickson, lagoons with ice floes and the magnificent glaciers. The park, which covers around 242,242 hectares, is inhabited by guanacos, rheas, condors, pumas, grey and "culpeo" foxes and a wide variety of birds which flutter around over the gently-flowing waters.

    How To Get to Torres del Paine
    Useful Information of Torres del Paine
    Chile Pictures - Torres del Paine Park - Travel to Chile The park, which was created in 1959, has three entry points: Porteria Sarmiento, Amarga lagoon and Azul lagoon. It also has pathways suitable for trekking and an efficient tourist infrastructure, which makes of it one of the best equipped resorts in Chile. Owing to its landscapes and great ecological importance, it was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 1978. Torres del Paine is located in the Province of Ultima Esperanza, 145 kilometers north of Puerto Natales. It ranges between 200 and 3050 meters above sea level, in the Paine massifs.

    -Paine Cordillera.
    These splendid granite towers amaze everyone who looks at them. The mountainous massif is crowned with glaciers and surrounded by lakes of the most fantastic colours: lapis lazuli, aquamarine, emerald, turquoise and sapphire. The authorized paths for tourists are flanked by "bearded" trees and mountains. Such landscapes turn this mountain range into a real paradise for trekking lovers.

    -Bernardo O´Higgins National Park.
    This is Chile's largest park, covering 3,525,901 hectares. One of its main attractions is the Pio XI glacier, from which huge blocks of ice fall, and which can be observed from tourist boats. The sight is truly moving, since the falling of these ice "walls" (they can measure up to 75 meters) makes a thunderous, spine-tingling crashing noise.

    -"Milodon" Cave..
    This is a natural monument consisting of three caverns (the biggest cave is located at a height of 150 metres) and a rocky conglomerate called "Silla del Diablo" (Devil's Chair). The name has its origin in the discovery in 1896 of the bones and skin of a "milodon" (Mylodon darwini), an enormous herbivore which became extinct by the end of the Pleistocene. Research has shown that these huge animals lived in the place together with other extinct species, such as the "dwarf horse", the "saber-toothed tiger" and the "great guanaco", until five thousand years ago. Inside the cave, there is life-size model of the "milodon". The cavern is located 24 kilometers north of Puerto Natales and 3 kilometers from the waters of the Eberhard fjord.
