"cirque of towers and mountains" just a short bus ride north of the comfortable town of Puerta Natales. Exceptional trekking with refugio huts perfectly spaced through out the park. Wildly quick and opposite type weather changes, - go fast. The most climbed area is the three towers, south, middle and north. All approached mostly for the Japanese basecamp. which is a very long one day hike from where the bus drops you off at the trail head which has a nice refugio and camping area. approaches from basecamp are about 2 hours, often folks set up a camp more near to the routes bases.
Fly to Punta Arenas, bus or car to Puerta Natales, then bus or car to the park.
