Lazo Weber

Lazo Weber trek offers fantastic views all along. The trail is situated in the southern part of Torres del Paine National Park, away from the main attractions, allowing for a whole view over the Paine mountain range, and more. Here is another occasion to avoid the crowds and go off the beaten track in one of the most visited parks in the country. Moreover, it is a one-way trip, with a constantly changing landscape.

The hike is mostly through flatlands, including gradual ups and downs. At the end awaits a very rewarding lookout that offers 360° views on the Paine mountain range as well as the southern lakes and snow-caped mountains. The greatest difficulty of this hike is the last steep downhill, with an elevation loss of ~300 m in less than 1 km. And, as always, watch out for the wind!

Difficulty: medium
Time: ~5 hours
Distance: ~14 km (~8.7 miles)
Cumulative Gain/Loss: ~450 m (~1300 ft)
