I have been living in Vina del Mar since September, and i am planning a trip to the south and I would love to camp a lot along the way, especially in Torres del Paine. Im traveling solo as well, and would love some advice. Im not planning to do any major trekking, only two nights in the park. Do you think its safe to go at it alone? And if so, which hike would you recommend? Thanks for the story, the pictures are beautiful. Peace and Love, Rosie
