Included in our all-day tour of Torres del Paine national park was a stop at Cueva del Milodon. This is a large cave that was formed by the glaciers. A milodon (prehistoric creature) hide was also discovered here so there is a statue of what they used to look like. Only a short hike to the cave from the parking lot. There is an entrance fee.

Huge cave located right near the entrance to the national park of Torres del Paine. It's worth it to stop and take a walk to the cave. On the walk they give nice insight of the animals that had inhabited Patagonia before becoming extinct. Once you get to the cave you will find a huge opening that was formed from melting glaciers. It's a nice place to get out and go to the bathroom before you get into the park but I wouldn't spend too much time there as the real gems are inside the park itself.

We had no idea what to expect before arriving at the cave. It was much larger than anticipated and impressive, but not for its stalagmites or stalactites, but for sheer size. The information boards along the route were very helpful in putting it into context. It needs a bit of interest in palaeontology, history and imagination to get the best from the visit. But it is well done.

This place has greatly improved since my first visit in 2004. There are sidewalks and signs providing information as to the history of the cave and other extinct animals that lived in the vicinity now. Just happen to return because other friends I was traveling with has never been there.

It you have never been to a big cave, go for it, otherwise, skip it.

After reading comments, we didn't expect much of the visit (we stopped there before visiting the Parque Torres del Paine), but I must admit that I was pretty impressed by the cave: it is huge! At the entrance you hear the story of the Milodon, and - whether it is mythical or not - the explanation of our guide was quite interesting. So the stop is worth the visit!
