are you looking for breath-taking views and quietness? Then southern Chile is the right place for you.
This is a small tribute to one of my much missed home-countries, Chile.
The Torres del Paine National Park, located in the XII Region called Magallanes, is the 5th most beautiful place on earth by National Geographic, was declared by UNESCO in 1978 as a Biosphere Reservoir, no pollution, spectacular landscapes, lakes, flora and fauna.
It used to be a mythical place years ago. Now more and more people are discovering this place, crowds have come along with environmental pressures on this land’s end. So yes, you’ll see lots of tents, campsites and cooking huts. Good news is that finally the CONAF has come up with measures to limit the numbers of visitors in order to mitigate the environmental impacts.
