“W” Hike – Torres del Paine – Day 6

Refugio Grey to Refugio Paine Grande (11km, 3.5h) – Catamaran – Puerto Natales by bus

Last day of our “W” hiking

To take 12.30 pm boat from Lake Pehoé, we left our refugio at 8 am to allow enough time for the estimated 4 hour hike. The path was familiar and easy, even though it looks always different from the opposite  direction.

We arrived at Lake Pehoé too early and relaxed at the terrace of the Refugio Grande Paine, enjoying the view and chatting with other hikers.

A boat took a full load of tired, yet happy hikers from the pier and glided on the azure-color water to the other side of the lake. From the boat we could see the entire panorama of the Torres del Paine range: imposing Los Curenos and sharp peaks of Los Torres, with the profound Valle del Francés – almost like a review of our 6 day hike.

At the end of the pier a bus was already waiting to transport the smelly crowd back to Puerto Natales. We were happy to get back to a hotel with a working shower and comfy beds for a good night sleep…
