Base Torres Viewpoint Trek

Difficulty level:
Distance: 18 km
Initial Altitude: 120 msnm
Maximum Altitude: 870 msnm
Start time: 07:00 hrs
Duration: 8 hrs

This demanding hike is worthy of its famous reputation. After crossing the Ascencio river, you will hike approximately 2.5km in a continuous ascent with winds reaching 480 msnm, where you will have a panoramic view of the pampa, the lakes to the south and the valley itself.

From there the trail will descend to the El Chileno camp. The vegetation here corresponds from the Pre-Andean Matorral and will then change quickly to an old-growth forest of Lenga trees where it will ascend again to the Torres Glacier. You will then leave the forest with one final ascent of approximately 45 minutes. The trail will take you to the base of Las Torres and the 3 granite giants will be standing right in front of you.

Along the way you may encounter some of the local wildlife like condors, black eagles and the Carancho.
