Chile is an awesome destination for those backpacking in South America with some of the world’s classic trekking routes through the craggy mountains of the Torres del Paine National Park.

"Hi everyone! I am going to be going on the Patagonia Dreaming trip in November 2012. I was wondering if anyone else has planned this trip, as I will be traveling alone and would like to get to know my fellow travelers! Or if anyone has gone on this trip I'd love to hear reviews/tips =)"
