This new guide to Chile's premier national park takes readers across one of the world's greatest treks. The Torres del Paine Circuit is a 140km journey using clear and well marked paths that link a comprehensive network of huts and campsites. Taking approximately 10-11 days to complete, it reaches its highest point at 1180m and offers beautiful views in every direction. The guide emphasises low-impact trekking, and has detailed route descriptions and full background and planning information. Torres del Paine has been a national park since 1959 and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 1978, and is home to some of South America's most iconic sights. Its immense landscape is filled with awe-inspiring mountains, beautifully unspoilt forests and emerald- coloured lakes. Transport to and within the park is simple and, with minimal elevation gain for most stages, none of the routes described are difficult.
