The second in the series of photos highlighting good trips in Latin America comes from Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia, where I trekked the “W” route for 5 days. The park is a world biosphere reserve and is home to a huge amount of plant and animal species, as well as snow capped mountain peaks, rivers, lakes, glaciers and waterfalls.
This photo was taken at the entrance to the park, and as I wrote at the time, it got things off to a great start:
I had an hour to kill before the catamaran left so I walked about 20 minutes to some waterfalls. Just around the corner from these I was able to get my first glimpse at the mountains I would be walking around for the next few days. Although cloud obscured part of the peaks, it was still a good way to begin the trip.
