Excursion to the base of the Towers
Our adventure will begin the day before your excursion as it is mandatory to attend Briefing
THE BRIEFING IS GIVEN DAILY AT 7:00 PM AT CASA DE LA PATAGONIA, IN MANUEL BULNES 407, PUERTO NATALES.
On the day of the Tour, our excursion begins at 07:00 a.m. from your hotel in Puerto Natales Central, and a van will take us to Estancia Cerro Paine, starting point of the trail and our Trekking.
We take the road in the direction of the Valley and after 10 minutes of walking, we will walk on an old suspension bridge that crosses the Ascencio river. About 150 meters further on, a bifurcation appears: on the left, it leads to Las Torres Base.
Then there is a zig-zag of marked slope and scarce vegetation for one hour. The ascent continues and passes by another slope and after 45 minutes the Chilean campsite is reached on the opposite bank of the Ascencio River, in the shade of a lengas forest, with moderate slope, crossing several slopes that fall from the Admiral Grandchild.
After about an hour and 10 minutes from the Chilean campsite, 700 meters above sea level, you reach the foot of the moraine that gives access to the viewpoint. From this point, the path increases its slope. First it goes next to a slope and under the shade of the small trees located on the edge of the moraine, but higher up the path is lost as such and you must continue ascending among the rocks, some of which are marked to show the route.
After half an hour from the signpost at 700 meters above sea level, you reach the eastern end of the lagoon, from where you have a wonderful view of the three towers (Central, monzino, Dagostini) and Peineta and Nido de Cóndores hills.
After resting and having lunch in this extraordinary and unique scenic context on the planet, we begin our return along the same path until we reach the starting point, where our driver will be waiting to return at the end of the day to Puerto Natales.
