We will leave Puerto Natales to the north, following the route to the Torres del Paine National Park. After a 2 hours trip, we will arrive in the Estancia Torres del Paine, the starting point of our trek. First, our guide will give a small presentation, and then we will begin walking through the track that will take us to an old bridge that crosses the Asencio River. After a one hour hike, we will arrive at El Chileno Campsite, in the shade of a spectacular lenga forest, crossing various springs falling from the Almirante Nieto Hill.
We will make a brief stop and then continue our way to the next viewpoint, at 700 meters high. Since here, the track increases its slope. Half an hour later, we will reach Las Torres Base by one end of the lagoon, from where we will have a great view of the three towers (Central, Monzino and Dagostini) and the Peineta and Nido de Cóndores hills. With this view, we will have time to rest and eat our box lunch. The return is on the same track until we arrive to the starting point, from where we will go back to Puerto Natales in a vehicle.
