Hello, we plan to walk the Torres del Paine without a tour guide.
(1) We saw some tour companies start the trek by taking the ferry from Hotel Lago Grey to Refugio Lago Grey. Then they walk from Refugio Lago Grey to Lodge Paine Grande (instead of the normal route of taking the catamaran thro' Lago Pehoe). The next day they continue to walk from Lodge Paine Grande to Los Cuernos and so on. Is this possible to do this ourselves?
(2) If so, how do we get to Hotel Lago Grey from Puerto Natales? Is there a bus and how long does it take? And do I book the ferry from here (http://www.lagogrey.cl/en/)? I see the ferry arrives at 1pm at Refugio Lago Grey.
(3) Which way is better to walk the W? from east to west or west to east?
Thank you very much for your comments!Edited: 12:38 am, October 09, 2013
