Absolutely gorgeous. This is my definition about Torres del Paine National Park located in Chilean Patagonia. This national park, created in 1959, is part of Unesco’s Biosphere Reserve system since 1978. It has this name because the granite pillars of Torres del Paine (Towers of Paine) dominate the landscape.
I visited this park for three days in a summer season and I realized that there are many attractions in this impressive landscape. I could see scenic views of lakes, mountains, forests, glaciers and rivers in Torres del Paine National Park.
Torres del Paine National Park is also home to some animals such as ostrich-like rhea (ñandú), flamingo, puma, Andean condor and other bird species. The star of park is the guanaco. I could see many of them bordered the roads and also on the steppes.
You can sleep inside Torres del Paine National Park area. There are rustic shelters or hotels but you must make reservations in advance. If you want to camp there, it’s important to bring a good tent. You can also contract a full day tour from nearby Puerto Natales city to Torres del Paine National Park but you’ll have only a brief look of what the Torres del Paine National Park has to offer. It’s always better to explore the park a minimum of three days because of the unpredictable weather systems. While I was there I got four seasons in a day.
I took a lot of pictures and made this video to show you a little about this fantastic Chilean park in the South America.
I want to return to this magic park someday. I love nature. I love this park. I’ll never forget this place.
Thanks for reading my post and watching my video. Bye! Drika
