There are few places in the entire world more desirable as a trekking destination than Torres del Paine National Park. Located in Chilean Patagonia, this vast portion of unspoiled mountain wilderness is protected, safe from development and welcoming to anyone looking for outdoor adventure. This itinerary covers all the highlights of the park, including visits to its mountain peaks, lakes, glaciers, and even a kayak outing on a nearby fjord. What could be better?
The hiking portion of this four-hour excursion begins at one of the smaller caves and offers the chance to head inside for a mini-spelunking adventure. The journey continues to a medium-sized cavern before finishing at the largest cave, which is 656 feet (200 meters) deep, 262 feet (80 meters) wide, and 98 feet (30 meters) high. The entrance to this massive cavern is impressive in its own right, as it looks not unlike the yawning mouth of a great giant. There's even a life-size replica of a mylodon standing guard just outside the entrance, which conjures images of a bygone age when that great beast really did prowl these grounds.
