Cuerno Principal and Glacial Notch(Arete)Cuerno Principal rises 700 meters- 2000 feet- above the glacially carved notch(Arete) below. The granite is so resistant to erosion that the end result looks more like Horns(Cuernos) rather than the classic glacial ridges seen in other mountain ranges.
Hotel Exploraa 5 star hotel on the shores of Lago Pehoe- for those wanting to both bring your culture to another country and experience as little of nature as possible while still being able to tell your friends you visited Torres del Paine.

Sunset, Parque Nacional Torres del PaineEverything is encapsulated here- the orange/pink granite and black slate cap of Almirante Nieto; the Torres del Paine in the background mist; the impossible stacks and bands of the Cuernos on the left...
