Massive fire at the moment in torres del paine chile, Not a good idea to come. Just got turned away today. Everything is very chaotic and the fire is getting worse and spreading. Don`t come this way - maybe if you want trekking nearby go to El chaten and the Fitzroy glacier. Manic here people tell you different things in puerto natales and then you go and it is closed. So you have to pay the bus in and then you just come back again. No point coming down going to be ruined for a litte while!
sorry for the bad news

i am hearing some news now that it is open again. Best idea is to ring one of the hostels the Erratic rock is reliable and just ask them the news on it if you are thinking of going.
good luck

I think the park is open and the fires in the park are out. The local paper stated everything was retuning to normal but there was damage to the park...
