Torres del Paine
The Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is part of Patagonia, and is easily accessed from Argentina.

Torres del Paine is in my view one of the most beautiful mountains on earth. The granite spires are amazing, sharp as knives. The views from the lake are breathtaking. And trekking towards the two main peaks, the Paine Grande and the Paine Chico, is an unbelievable experience.

Best time to visit: December, during the Austral summer.
