Best of W path in 2 days - help, please!

by MaiaMik Online Now Feb 20, 2010 at 12:25 PM

My main interest is photography. I plan to take Zodiak boat from Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine on Dec 9th, then spend 10th and 11th trekking parts of W Path.
I would appreciate any recommendations of itinerary of seeing the parts of W path in those two days - willing to hike 10 hours a day. Also based on that, which refugios should I stay at on those three nights in the park to maximize the time?
How to make reservations in the refugios.
Thank you!

    Try to find out exactly where the zodiac will leave you and what transportation will be available at that point. T del P is quite big and without transport you coud spend all your time getting to places rather than being there. Public transport in the park is very limited.

    Lodge de Montaña Paine Grande is a reasonably central refugio.

    To see the Torres at sunrise is unforgettable but requires overnighting in a tent.

    Let us know if you need more info but please make sure about your transport arrangements in the park
