Departure from Puerto Natales at 07:00 am and transfer straight to Las Torres area where we arrive to Estancia Cerro Paine, starting point of the trail, beginning of our hike, following instructive talk by our tour guide.

We take the road towards the Valley and after 10 minutes of walking, we will pass on an old suspension bridge that crosses the river Ascencio. About 150 meters ahead, a bifurcation appears: on the left leads to Base Las Torres. Then follows a zig-zag slope and sparse vegetation for an hour. It rises again and passed along to other side and after 45 minutes, the Chilean Camping is reached on the opposite edge of the River Ascencio, in the shade of a forest of Lengas, with moderate pendant, crossing several slopes that fall from the Almirante Nieto mount.

After about an hour and 10 minutes from El Chileno Campsite, at 700 meters above sea level, it reaches the foot of the moraine that leads to the viewpoint. From this point, the trail increases its slope. First it is next to a pendant and under the shade of small trees located on the edge of the moraine, but as it increases, it gets lost and have to continue climbing the rocks, some of which are marked to show the route. After about half an hour from the sign "700 msnm", you'll reach the east end of the lagoon, where you have a wonderful view of the three towers (Central, Monzino, Dagostini) and the hills Peineta and Nido de Cóndores.

After resting and having lunch at this extraordinary and unique scenary of the planet, we begin our return along the same path until you reach the point where our driver will be waiting to return at the end of the day to Puerto Natales.
