Torres del Paine Circuit Trek

chi42-tdpcircuittrek-free-sallydodge

A demanding trek that gives access to the full gamut of views and perspectives over the Paine massif.

Many consider this the ultimate Torres del Paine trek – taking you right over the top of the Paine massif to go one step further and deeper than any other route. The trek also treads much of the same ground as the shorter ‘W’ trail, combining a close-up view of the majestic granite Torres with a panorama of the Cuernos as they transform from deep blue to rose and amber in the changing Patagonian light.

The Circuit suits trekkers who enjoy a challenge and are comfortable in a remote wilderness environment. While basic mountain refuges provide shelter and warmth along stretches of the route, some camping is unavoidable, adding to a thrilling sense of immersion in this awe-inspiring natural realm.
