The Torres del Paine National Park, declared in 2013 as Eighth Wonder of the World , by the website www.virtualtourist.com and Biosphere Reserve by Unesco, is one of the main destinations of Chile and Latin America. Its landscapes, lakes, glaciers, rivers, its flora and fauna, and its diverse trail circuits attract every year visitors from all corners of the planet, considered an iconic destination in mountain trekking.
Within the trekking circuit system of Torres del Paine National Park, the Base Torres trail is one of the busiest, as it reaches the foothills of these fabulous mountains.
With the increase in visitors to the Park, which now exceeds 260,000 a year, daily traffic on the Base Torres path has also increased. This, more diverse climatic factors, have caused an important degree of erosion and deterioration.
Faced with this situation in 2015 the NGO AMA Torres del Paine, in its mission of conservation and care of the park, brings to Chile the Canadian company, Shuswap Trail Alliance, experts in preservation and construction of sustainable trails, who perform a diagnosis that corroborates what many locals already knew. Indeed, the Torres Base Trail is in a serious state of erosion, where it not only threatens the safety of those who pass through it, it also generates an important environmental impact that affects the conservation of the park.
