Chile has been one of those countries that has surprised me. We hear the stories about how beautiful and diverse it is but I really was not expecting this. From the driest desert in the world up north, to Patagonian ice fields down south, Chile has it all.
Torres Del Paine – easily one of the most extreme and erratic treks I’ve done. Unlike many other treks, this one condenses some phenomenal sites into 5 incredible days. This post is a photoblog but at the end of it, I’ve included some practical info that may help you as the information out there is a bit sketchy!
The beauty of Chile being such a long country is that is crosses so many geographic belts so you really get all worlds in one place. After leaving Pucon, I began journeying deeper into the Lakes District. You have to see this place!
Chile has it all. I started my trip in this country in the Atacama Desert – the driest place on earth, and now I’m in the Chilean Lake District – it’s difficult to believe these 2 places are in the same country – massive lakes, forests and snow-capped volcanoes all around – incredible!
I have never felt as isolated from the rest of the world as I have on Easter Island. This adds to the mystery of the Rapa Nui people and how the hell they got here in the first place. It’s a beautiful sort of isolation – a small town feel and an overarching sense of mystery – I love it!
