Trek time: 2 hours
So at 2AM, we woke up with our backpacks and clothes ready along with the most important things: headlamps & flashlights. Las Torres is what we came to here to see, since the park is named after the three towers.
Since we would be going back to the refugio after this sunrise hike, we left most of our things behind and carried only the essentials.
Tip: Bring hand warmers and a jacket, it is freezing up there at sunrise!
After a lot of scrambling in the dark (yay for headlamps) over large boulders, we got to the top to catch the sunrise.
I love the color change
You can see the moon. Turn 180 degrees and you see the three towers…
Turn back around and you see Boo…
As the sun beams touch the top of the towers, people are staring intensely.
Some camp out on random rocks to sit for hours.
After breakfast, we hiked to Refugios las Torres, which was to be the best refugio we stayed at with the cleanest facilities and best food!
Refugios las Torres
We were hungry so we got a chicken sandwich for pre-dinner snack, it was SO GOOD and juicy and tender.
Amazing pork for dinner. Definitely the best refugio in the whole trek.
Finally, dessert that tastes like dessert.
We leave for Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas the next day. There are only 2 scheduled bus times that leave the park, so make sure you check the schedule beforehand!
