Torres del Paine – Classic Trekking

Share/Bookmark

Torres del Paine is home to some of the world’s most classic trekking routes. The W Trek and the Paine Circuit are popular routes. It is a national park encompassing mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers in southern Chilean Patagonia. The Cordillera del Paine is the centerpiece of the park. It lies in a transition area between the Magellanic subpolar forests and the Patagonian Steppes. This mountainous region dates to at least twelve million years. Sedimentary rock and magma met and was thrust high into the air. The best time to visit the park is between November and April, which coincide with spring and summer in the southern hemisphere. The park draws in approximately 100,000 visitors each year who visit the Paine Towers, Los Cuernos, French Valley and Grey Glacier.

Hiking in Mount Roraima

Hiking in Mount Roraima

Share/Bookmark

Mount Roraima is one of the oldest mountain formations on Earth, a natural border between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana in South America. It is around 2,800 metres tall. Its name is derived from Roroi-ma, which in Pemon means ‘big blue-green.’ The only way visitors can climb to the top is from the Gran Sabana side, in Venezuela. With sheer 400-metre high cliffs on all sides this is only one ‘easy’ way up. On the top of the mountain it rains almost every day, washing away most of the nutrients for plants to grow and creating a unique landscape on the bare sandstone surface. Arthur Conan Doyle populated the tepui Roraima with dinosaurs, strange vegetation and animals in his book, The Lost World, probably the best adventure novel of all times.
