Torres del Paine 2025

 by   Renato Machado

APRIL 2024

A little about this wonderful destination.

Come and discover exotic Patagonia up close

We start in Torres del Paine National Park, everything revolves around an immense mass of mountains that can be informally divided into two parts. On one side, 'Los Cuernos' and its incredible ballet of forms and stratified surfaces. To the northeast, the famous granite towers that make climbers from all over the world happy. The entire mountain range was formed over the last ice ages, carving out a chain of peaks independent of the Andes. Surrounding it are dramatic glaciers, such as Grey, and meltwater lakes with waters in shades of blue, green and gray. Its milky appearance comes from the voluminous load of minerals that have been stripped from the slopes by gigantic tongues of ice for tens of thousands of years. Lakes like Sarmiento, del Toro,

Be my guest and come and photograph the beauties of Argentine and Chilean Patagonia.
