5 Things to Do Before Leaving your House for Torres Del Paine Trekking Tours If you do not plan before setting out on Torres Del Paine trekking tours you will not be able to enjoy it as much as you should or hoped for. Plan before setting out and it will go like a breeze.

Slide 2:

When planning a trek in the wilds one does not simply pack a bag and set off. You need to plan and be prepared before undertaking a rough trek in Nature, far from civilization. These are the five things to do before leaving your house for Torres Del Paine trekking tours.

Slide 3:

Book a tour with a local Chilean tour operator Trekking along in the wild region of Torres Del Paine is only for those who are experts. If you are a casual trekker, you would be better of booking a guided tour with Chiletourpatagonia.com. You have the option of a regular W circuit or a custom W trek. It is important to book with Torres Del Paine trekking tours with ChileTour Patagonia because there are reservations to be made at hotels as well as campsites along the W route or O route and you get the benefit of a guide.

Slide 4:

Toughen up Book the tour at least a month before the departure date. In the meanwhile, toughen up. Each day one has to trek about 20 kilometres, some of them over steep paths so it is best to job or walk at least 10 kilometres before setting off to Chile. Decide if you want to do the entire O trek, the W trek or only small portions such as trips to Los Cuernos or the French Valley.

Slide 5:

Buy woollens, raincoats, boots and so on You could arrive in Chile and rent woollens, tents, boots and raincoats but these are expensive over there. Buy locally and make sure these are as lightweight as possible. You will be trekking for 20 kilometres and if it is a heavy rucksack on your shoulders, it will be more tiring. Buy a first aid kit, water purifier tablets and small but useful stuff like a torch, a portable stove, spare batteries for your mobile or camera. It is best to make a list and then buy.

Slide 6:

Foods to carry You could probably get ready to eat stuff at Puerto Natales but why wait till then? Your city may have some stores offering specialist freeze dried stuff that may be much better and you can also have more to choose from. Select a collection of chocolates, dried fruits, nuts and high protein foods you can eat simply by adding hot water.

Slide 7:

Take care of insurance and travel documents and health certificate Take out extra insurance for an overseas trip and have your travel documents checked by a travel agency. Make sure to get shots against malaria and other infectious diseases so you are fully protected. You cannot afford to fall ill and prove an inconvenience to the guide and other guests on the trek. It does not matter if you go alone for the trek because you will join up with other trekkers and also make friends on the route but if you can take a friend along, you will enjoy the trek even more. Preparation is the key to a hugely enjoyable trek in Torres Del Paine.
