The magic of Torres del Paine

Greetings from Patagonia…wish you were here!

Photo taken in November 2003 during a trek in the famous Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia Chile.

Hidden at the far southern tip of Chile is home to Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most insanely beautiful parks in the world.  In this remote, windswept region of nowhereland, you can experience four seasons in a day and winds so powerful that they knock you down.  It is one of the most spectacular settings possible for trekking yet extremely difficult to reach.

As you drive through the barren pampa land without seeing much of any sign of civilization, the park magically appears out of the sky.  When you drive along the long, gravel round entering the park this is the view you see:  Unforgetable.

Stay tuned….my next series will be on Torres del Paine National Park starting with a day visit to Lima, followed by a trip south to Puenta Arenas an unusual town that is extremely windy, followed by a visit and trek through the world-famous park.

Thank you again for sharing such an amazing journey to a wonderful land, a land of endless possibilities. The words of the post are so soothing, just brings me closer to where the adventure is. Thanks. Take care.

  2. Truly magical. 4 seasons in one day, that sounds so dreamy. I wish I could see something like that in the future. The words flowed so beautifully that it feels like I was there myself. Enchanting photos, so calm, so breathtaking. Thank you for making us a part of your adventures.
