Base Torres  (Towers’ Base)

Base Torres is one of the most visited trails in Torres del Paine National Park. It belongs to  part of the world famous “W” tourist circuit. Its most important attraction is the viewpoint of the towers, after a 4 hour trekking and another 4 for the return. The trail starts from Hosteria Las Torres. You walk bordering the Almirante Nieto mountain and Ascencio River. On the route there is a remarkable contrast between the Patagonian steppe and the native forest. The final ascent is through a 1km moraine until you reach an amphitheater-type viewpoint with the best views of the Torres del Paine.
