Back from Torres del Paine – Hiking the Circuit + “W” in 5 days
So, I went to Torres del Paine thinking i’ll do the “W” and maybe, just maybe i’ll do the “circuito”, which normally takes 8 days. I ended up finishing the full circuito + w in 5 days (including today) and feel fantastic, going through the 2nd liter of chocolate milk now, thus granting myself this permission to brag. Averaged about 30km/18miles per day of hiking. Some in flats, some in hard mountain terrain, especially the John Gardner Pass, which rewarded me with beautiful view of the glacier. Heard incredible cracks and breaking of glaciers in Valle de Francese, swam in Lago Nordenskjold near Los Cuernos Campo. This morning woke up to a moon hanging over “the horns” Los Cuernos and camped in some truly incredibly beautiful places. Torres del Paine is great, but i would say that Fitz Roy in Argentina is really no worse. — at Parque Nacional Torres del Paine.
