Departure from Puerto Natales at 07:00 am and direct transfer to sector Las Torres where we will arrive at “Estancia Cerro Paine”, starting point of the trail. There we will receive an informative preliminary talk from our guide. Start of the walk.
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 follows a zigzag of marked slope and sparse vegetation for one hour. The ascent continues and passes by another slope and after 45 minutes the Chilean Camping is reached on the opposite bank of the Ascencio River, in the shade of a lenga 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 about half an hour from the signpost at 700 masl, 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.
