Dear sirs, This place is just outside of our town's urban area (La Junta, Región de Aysén, Chile). It isn't an authorized site for camping, it is illegal by chilean law to camp in unauthorized sites. It might look like a nice place to do camping overnight but people using it as a camping site are causing problems to our town: litter, poop, bad smells, etc., making a nice place by the river an awful place to visit and to look at from the bridge, since most of the people that have camped there leave their trash behind, etc. This place has been used for more than a decade by the town inhabitants for small festivals by the river and as an access place for fly-fishing boats, kayaking, rafting, etc. The "camping scene" our anglers, kayak tourists, etc. are finding is not pleasant now that campers have begun to show up more and more frequently. We, as inhabitants of the town of La Junta ask that it is not published as a camping site, because more and more illegal campers will continue to arrive, thinking it is OK to camp there if you continue to publish it. Carabineros (chilean police) can ask them to leave the site if town organizations or inhabitants inform campers are there, so it wouldn't be a nice experience for the campers either. It has been a local issue this summer and investigating a bit, someone pointed our your website shows this place by the bridge at the entrance of La Junta like a nice place to do camping. We have camping sites in town (Vientos del Sur, Don Fede, for example) and there are other sites near La Junta (Los Avellanos, 2km north of La Junta, Altamirano, 18 km south of La Junta). Please do not propitiate camping in unauthorized places. We hope you can help us by retiring this from your published places to do camping. I have been asked to write this note since I can communicate in English. Thank you in name of our town inhabitants, my friends and neighbours. Constanza Palacios from La Junta, Aysén.

We were able fill our fixed US propane tank here no problem. Very helpful folks. This is a smaller tank with a pull-through area, made for filling propane cars. There's another one in town, Lipigas, with the same set up (not the big plant outside of town) that should be able to fill as well. Our tank is a standard Westfalia tank with the large male threads.

If like us you arrive after this time you are out of luck. (Nb.

From the main road you drive right on the gravel road next to the church, then go directly in front of the little church on the dirt, swing left and follow the road about halfway along. It's full of rocks and sharp bushes so navigate to a spot carefully. We walked in first. The logging track seems unused and there are no houses (except at the very end).

We got here quiet late and the unassuming gravel road by the creek quickly morphed into a raging torrential waterfall. We loved it! We camped out in the open (not viewable from road) but there were dozens of tracks leading off into the scrub where there were heaps of local families camping and having a good time. It was pretty cool - from our spot we felt totally alone, and then an entire family would just 'emerge' from the bushes. No facilities, but the creek is there for water. Few fire pits around.

The most popular is called the 'w' and goes from Paine Grande to Las Torres. The other main hike is called the 'o' and does a loop around the park. With a car you can drive to several day hikes, including the 20km return walk to the Torres mirador (highly recommended). However you cannot see all highlights of the park with a car - to do so you need to hike and tent camp (or book in advance to stay in Refugios) . We chose not to complete the popular circuits, but did take a day hike to the Torres, and then took the ferry to Paine Grande (across lake Pehoe-24,000 pesos per person for a return ticket) for a three day hike to the top of the John Gardner pass and back. In our opinion this gave us the opportunity to see the highlights of the park (the Torres, and Glacier Grey) whilst mostly avoiding the crowds. To do so we camped one night at Camping Paso (free) and the second at Camping Grey (6000 pp). They were long hikes, but the views were out of this world. To hike beside a glacier is absolutely magical, and to sit atop the pass affords views of the back of the park. Many people commented that this was the favourite part of their trek, and if you have the time and fitness we cannot recommended it highly enough. The refugios and lodges offer expensive food (snickers bar will cost 2000 pesos, a can of coke 2000 pesos) so it is best to carry everything you can. Cooking must be done in designated areas because of fire risk. Water can be drunk from streams, but look up at the source, as some commented that in areas it could be contaminated (septic waste was spotted overflowing into the river at Camping chileno). Remember hiking etiquette - keep right on the trail and allow faster people to pass. Overall we had heard stories of the park not being worth the hassle and cost. We had been warned of overwhelming crowds, expensive camping and mess. But overall, whilst busy (we visited in peak season) we found most people were polite and the facilities adequate to our needs.
