The Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is a beautiful place full of amazing vegetation, animals, and majestic sights. It's certain that you'll need to have a video camera ready because you'll want to be able to cherish these sights forever.

In the center of the park lies the Cordillera del Paine mountain range. These mountains are very small but don't let the size fool you as they are stunning. People from all over the world come to the park just to get a glimpse of these mountains. The three most amazing mountains in the area are known locally as the three Towers of Paine.

What is so amazing about these three small mountains is that they were shaped by glacial ice! There's not much else like it in this world! Mountains may not be your thing, but don't worry, there's a lot more to see. In the Torres del Paine national park you'll also be able to see numerous wildlife including puma, skunk, foxes, and various species of birds. All of these animals are fascinating.
