This is a continuation of my last two posts about trekking the circuit in Torres del Paine. Click here to read part 1 (which is an introduction to the park) and click here to see part 2. Part 3 was the most challenging of the trek but with the greatest challenges, also come the greatest rewards.
Just another quick update. We put most of our photos from the Argentinian Patagonia (Bariloche, El Bolson, Esquel & El Chalten), Ushuaia, the South of the Chilean Patagonia (P.N. Torres del Paine, Puerto Natales & Punta Arenas) and Antarctica. So if you are tired of reading, you can just look at the pictures! Click on the 'photos' tab and you can search by place. Enjoy!!!
Finally we were going to get our big chance to do the circuit at TDP! The prospect had me nervously excited as I hoped we could carry as much stuff as we had packed for such a long time, every day. Three years ago we failed. I hoped for the best this time around.
After trekking in El Chalten, we took a bus back to El Calafate. El Calafate kind of sucks but unfortunately it's a major hub in Patagonia and is a gateway to the southern part of Parque Nacional Los Glaciares (El Chalten serves the northern and free part of the park) and you usually have to go there to transfer to other places you want to travel to.
