Chile: Torres del Paine NP – Rio Frances Valley

Rio Frances Valley is the middle valley of the “W” in Torres del Paine National Park and is the most spectacular hike by a wide margin. This hike has everything – spectacular forest, towering mountains, hanging glaciers, and swift glacial streams. If you get lucky with the weather and it’s not misty – you will be treated to some of the most stunning and panoramic views in the world – Cerro Cota (2000m) and Cerro Catedral (2200m).
