An intense trip due to the distances covered and sights seen, sleep lost due to very early starts and some late arrivals. Walks may not start a.m. with recovery late in the afternoon due to moving around the country. Hotels are good, refuges range from good [Orsono Volcano] to poor [base of Torres del Paine], all have electricity and powerpoints. This trip provides more to see than any other of my previous ones, Peru, Ecuador, Nepal and Tibet. The local travel partner provides the best welcome pack I have seen, excellent information on each place and a map of Chile.
