Tell us about Torres del Paine
Torres Del Paine is breathtaking. Words simply cannot describe how intense the experience is, witnessing natural phenomenon that I have never seen before.
Tell us about the Trekking
The trek is brutal but motivational. Each day, you get to experience a different landscape: lakes, mountains, valleys, rivers, waterfalls, cliffs, multiple glaciers. However, the path is long, rocky, and never flat. The number one priority is having good shoes and socks.
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Patagonia?
Bring clothes for all types of weather! During our 5 day trek, we experienced intense rain, clear skies, hot sun, howling winds, and clouds. Throughout each day, we would change what we were wearing to adapt to the weather. Good (waterproof) shoes, socks, and hiking poles are a must. Finally, no need to overpack: besides layers for weather, we each brought 1 day outfit and 1 night outfit and just wore those throughout the whole trek.
Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?
This trek has made me more confident that I can accomplish more aggressive backpacking trips.
