Our tour of Torres del Paine National Park begins with a visit to the ancient Milodon Cave. This cave holds significant scientific value as it was the site of a major discovery in 1896. Fossils, including skin, bones, and other remains, were found here, revealing the existence of an extinct animal known as the "milodón." This large herbivore is believed to have become extinct during the late Pleistocene period.

Continuing our journey, we enter Torres del Paine National Park and make our way to Nordenskjold and Pehoe Lakes. Along the way, we will encounter groups of guanacos, a camelid species native to South America. After a short 10-minute walk, we will reach the stunning Salto Grande Waterfall.
