French Valley Trek, Chile

Leaving the Paine Grande Mountain Lodge, follow signs for Capming Itialiano. You will reach the campsite after around 1½ hours walking along the base of the Torres Massif, along Lago Pehoe and across small streams and valleys.

A suspension bridge will mark the begining of the French Valley. At this point you should turn left and follow the red marks on the trees. This will take you up the valley at to 'Camping Britinica' around another 2 hours from 'Camping Italiano'.

Along the way you will have spectacular views of the towers from the opposite side from the trek you can do to their base. There are also spectacular glaciers whish you watch calving away, the sound of this will accompany you all the way.

If you have time to go beyond Britinica it is well worth it as the path gets higher the views get better.

Return to the Paine Grande Mountain Lodge along the same path.
