Torres del Paine: Grande q

Post by forrestmccarthy » Mon Jan 13, 2014 7:30 pm

The Torres del Paine National Park, located in southern Chilean Patagonia, encompasses a mystical landscape of granite walls and spires, chaotic glaciers, windy lakes, and numerous rivers, cascades, and waterfalls. The trekking route that circumnavigates the park's centerpiece the Cordillera del Paine is celebrated worldwide. Packrafts can be used to expand and enhance the legendary Torres del Paine Circuit and allow further exploration of this primeval and iconic landscape.

In addition to paddling the Rio Paine as part of the Torres del Paine Circuit. Amy and I utilized our packrafts to descend the Rio Grey and Rio Sarrano Rivers to the Seno de Ultima Espanza and the Pacific Ocean, creating a world-class packrafting route we nicknamed the "Grande q."

How many days was this trip? Looking to do a 7-10 day trip in that area. Curious if you have a suggestion.
