Torres del Paine (Part 1)

December 18-24, 2010

Incredible experience hiking the W Circuit in  Parque Nacional Torres del Paine in Chile. Stayed in Refugio's (hostel like but closer to hotel with bunk beds). The cost was about $45 a night without sheets and blanket which was extra $12 so I rented a sleeping bag for my bunk at $3 a day. Also there was no kitchen access so breakfast was $12, lunch was $14 and dinner was $17. Quite a little racket they have since they have a monopoly unless you are camping. But sometimes you have to pay to see those sights which are hard to get to and in great demand. Would have camped and cooked myself if I had known what I know now but regardless, it was one of those great hiking experiences.
