Stop At: Torres del Paine National Park, Torres del Paine National Park, Magallanes Region
An excursion that unites two of the three accesses that Torres del Paine National Park has, making it possible to visit a not well known and very attractive perspective for wildlife observation. Its landscape environment is undoubtedly a worthy place to visit.
At the moment of entering the park through the Lago Sarmiento gate, we will begin our path with a gentle slope with a side view of the imposing Lake Sarmiento adjoining private lands, the usual hunting area for the region's largest predator, the Puma, specie that finds in the Torres del Paine its main source of food, the Guanaco.
After an hour walking, we will reach an eaves where it is possible to observe a series of cave paintings with a date that exceeds 6,000 years old, a place frequented by groups of hunters known as one of the first populations that arrived in Patagonia. In this site we can photograph the environment and learn a little more about the local history. The activity continues in the direction of Laguna Blanquillos, nesting and feeding place of different species of endemic birds of Patagonia such as ducks, caiquenes and black-necked swans always with frontal view towards the Paine mountain range.
After 3 hours of walking we will arrive at the main access of Torres del Paine National Park: Laguna Amarga porter. After a stop for the use of services we will return to the vehicle to go to a little known area where the milky waters of the Paine River coming from Dickson Glacier increase its flow with great concentration of minerals and sediments, we refer to the Paine Cascade. In this place we will have free time to enjoy our box lunch with a frontal view towards the granite towers between Ñirre bushes. The journey continues towards Cañadón Macho, an area where it is possible to observe large groups of guanacos that live with species such as the Ñandú, Gray Fox, Condor, Black Eagle among others.
