Laguna Amarga, Patagonia

Torres del Paine National Park encompassing mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers in southern Chilean Patagonia.
The Torres del Paine (Towers of Paine) are spectacular granite pillars that dominate the landscape of what may be South America’s finest national park.

The park, 181,000 hectares on the Seno de Ultima Esperanza, or Last Hope Inlet, was created in 1959 and declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1978. The name “Paine” comes from a Tehuelche indian word meaning “blue”.
