The Base of the Towers viewpoint is one of the most iconic and beautiful places in Chilean Patagonia. Hike along the most-hiked path in Torres del Paine National Park, and be captivated by the Patagonian scenery until you reach our goal.


  • Experience the Base of the Towers viewpoint
  • Go forest trekking at Torres del Paine
  • View the mountains and pristine landscapes


Following a 2-hour drive you will arrive to Hotel las Torres. Following a safety briefing from your guide, the excursion will begin. The track takes you up into the Asencio River Valley, and 2 hours later you will arrive in El Chileno, a camping site where your hike will continue through a dense forested area. There you can also admire a small stream which flows from the Almirante Nieto peak. The path brings you to a moraine, where the slope steepens until the Paine Towers viewpoint, which sits at 890 meters above sea level. At the viewpoint you will enjoy incredible views of the three towers, and will also have some time to have lunch and rest for your return journey. If weather conditions permit it, you will be able to observe one of the most spectacular views worldwide. You will return along the same path to “Hosteria Las Torres”, where your bus will be waiting. Your approximate time of arrival back to Puerto Natales is 9:00PM.
