Itâs a trail for the humble; not for the proud. To draw the right conclusions for your hike read my comments to this film either before or better after watching. A commercial use including fundraising naturally aims for maximal publicity to make it a success. The trift wood on these shores can indicate you to what level the water may rise. The trails and minor roads are generally well visible on satellite images. of the trail files without sufficiently emphasizing the Code of Conduct and Best Practices jeopardizes the protection and preservation of this region and endangers the currently generally positive relationship between the residents along this trail and hiking guests. It is a 3,000 km (1,850 mi) route acrosses five of the nine trekking zones (Central Andes, Alto Bío Bío, Andean Araucanía, Valdivian Forest, Patagonia Aysén). Google Earth and Bing Maps was very helpful to plan the trail from the river Polcura to the northern end of the Laguna de Las Lajas and over the ridge to the hydro power station El Toro. With his advise we found later the alternative route to the Laguna Las Truchas comming from the north via "Las Tragedias" and "Palo Seco". Hitch-hiking is generally feasible. For me this discussion about the limits of Patagonia is irrelevant as long as I can walk and paddle through pristine and varied terrain. The irony was I send them greatly improved routes several weeks before they departed for exactly the area where they got stuck. The Panoramio images of Manuel Hevia confirmed that a trail from the volcano and lake Hornitos to the Hydro Power Station Cipreces exists and is accessible. But be very careful; wild fires are a severe danger and in most national parks open fires are strictly banned. But such an expedition should only be considered by highly skilled hikers or packrafters that already know Patagonia very well and that are humbled by experience. There are no similar controls when entering the property southbound from the Laguna de Las Lajas. The Wikiexplora article comes with one weakness: offline access while being on the GPT. Any action taken upon this information is strictly at your own risk. Some best practices and habits that are key for thru-hiking in the US would be foolish in Patagonia and other skills and aptitudes are essential to truly appreciate the Greater Patagonian Trail. The trails and minor roads are generally well visible on satellite images. I do not need to point out that these writing habits also shape this article. Additionally, packrafters can cross mountain lakes, float down generally calm rivers and even paddle on the Patagonian fjords. Interestingly, these were partly experienced hikers and athletic walkers. When he reached the already verified part of the GPT he did not continue on the âpath of least resistanceâ by following the already well documented regular route but instead he kept investigating and recording the more remote and mountainous options that I drafted mainly based on satellite images and descriptions from local arrieros. The owners of the Fundo Huililco permit hikers to pass as long they do not leave trash. We than walked about 5 km until we reached a locked gate just before a public road. and where no more adventurous route was found also public roads with moderate transit traffic. What you find now in this article is the result of a deepening relationship with this unique region that started back in 2002. The Greater Patagonian Trail (GPT) is 1,300 miles long and counting. River downstream float with a packraft. Many of these settlers are proud of their heritage and enjoy sharing their history. Therefore naming the trail after the actual regions seamed not a good choice. Common names include buffelgrass, sandburs and sand spur. Here all hikers can post brief summaries after completing a section and leave notes that might be beneficial for others that are en route. A unique blend of people live along the trails and makes the hike more of a cultural experience. Knowing the names is always a benefit and very useful when asking for permission to pass. In particular experienced hikers are at risk to make incorrect assumptions and rely on a false sense of expertise because the GPT is so different compared to other long distance trails. And fierce snow storms may make the route again impassable in late March or during April. If you have questions that are not answered in this trail descriptions then you may send me an email. In bad or instable weather do not climb a pass or venture into exposed terrain above the tree line. Public gravel or paved road with moderate transit traffic. This example also excludes the not yet verified and very challenging exploration sections. What you need when packrafting is a dry suite; not only for comfort but as a life insurance. And remember, when you walk on these trails you are a guest on the land of someone else. On the GPT hikers have no domiciliary rights; they are just unexpected guests. Summits rarely exceed 4000 m but most passes are still above 2000 m. Here the Andes are much more suitable for hiking. For me this discussion about the limits of Patagonia is irrelevant as long as I can walk and paddle through pristine and varied terrain. Iâm not planning to include such detailed information in wikiexplora because bus schedules change too often. the name embraces the legend of Patagonia and may become a legend itself. I advise you not to use this service offered by JAC. These valleys are now partly filled by lakes and get drained by powerful rivers. Most of the horse trails were created by local herdsman to drive livestock to their pastures and other parts of the route are current or disused wood logging roads. In this section I want to share some of our experiences with the people that we meet along the trail. Rather wait or return and seek shelter if the weather changes in a concerning manner. Suitable gear is essential but it must be suitable for you and what you are comfortable and skilled to use. Hyperlinks to resources in the internet are also blue but have a globe sign after the link. A growing number of Chileans and Argentines begin to hike, mainly in national parks. There are several other locations in the vicinity of the GPT where horse riding tours can be done. It was simply the political mindset of this time that each nation takes the land that they have the power to grab. Quite the opposite tourists are welcome and received with hospitality as long as they donât pretend to belong to a superior race. If you are a tourist from outside of Latin America accept that you are called a âGringoâ in particular if you are from Europe or North America. Sometimes the "patron" instructs the "cuidador" to not let anyone pass. Vilches Alto is located 30 km west of the volcano Descabezado Grande in the vicinity of section GPT06. The Huella Andina provides a resupply point at least on every second day. Minor roads are without transit traffic therefore hitch-hiking is rarely feasible. The Huella Andina was developed considering that hiking novices may walk this trail. Therefore, to get a more personal insight to this trail read as part of your preparation some blogs written by hikers that travelled the GPT in recent years. If the development of the Huella Andina is continued than both trails; the Huella Andina and the Greater Patagonian Trail; may form the basis of a trail network in the Patagonian Andes that offer multiple hiking options from rather easy trails suitable for beginners to quite challenging routes for self-reliant hiking experts. If you are charged by a dog or a pack of dogs, a phrase they commonly recognize is if you shout âvete pa yaâ (go over there) or stoop down and pick up (or even just simulate picking up) a rock and they usually turn tail. But speed is not our objective. This trail is a mostly signposted and marked hiking trail and substantially less demanding when compared with the Greater Patagonian Trail. Combine: If you want to spend more time on the trail and less time in buses and towns than add several sections into longer hiking legs without leaving the trail to resupply. If you walk on the GPT please continuously record your hike by GPS and share these records with me. Hola, mi nombre es Martín Hurtado y el año 2020 caminé por 42 días siguiendo el Greater Patagonian Trail. Later they were found death. On the other side naming the trail after the Andes like "Andes Trail" would be a huge exaggeration because the trail spans only a smaller part of this 7000 km long mountain range. You may read the Wikipedia articles to the demographics of Chile and Argentina to learn more about the native tribes and ethnic groups that settle this land for thousands of years and the 500 years of post-Columbian immigration into these countries. So the extra cost and additional weight of paper maps do not justify to my opinion the minor benefit of paper maps. This table will be used to share updates provided by hikers. The gear needs to be reduced to what is essential. We combined up to four sections into a long hiking stretch without getting off the trail. the surrounding of El Chalten with Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. 8 kg or 4 kg per person if shared. Most of this section was planned using Google Earth and Bing Maps. Fundo CarrÃ¡n: The Fundo CarrÃ¡n is located south of the Lago Maihue. If you get hit by an earthquake while walking look up to check the area above you for liberated material that comes towards you and seek shelter. It was an wounderful hike and a crucial experience to start with the planning of a long distance trail though the Patagonian Andes. Snow-blindness can disable you for a few days if you did not wear sun glasses while crossing large snow fields in bright sunlight. Some blogs are also very useful to extract lessons learned by others to not start hiking with similar incorrect assumptions and repeat frustrating mistakes. This currently 500 page electronic manual or handbook facilitates a detailed preparation of a hike and makes relevant information available during a hike. Therefore the recommended preventive measures are: With this wikiexplora article I aim to provide a comprehensive introduction with a systematical description of the trail network. In summer expect a generally hot and dry climate but be prepared for chilly nights higher up. If you bustle in brusquely, expect for services to be rendered even more slowly. Here you can opt between attractive hiking and attractive packrafting routes but weather is volatile and distances between settlements are substantial. The fact that someone took a particular water route before does not mean that it is safe anytime later. There a couple of questions that quickly indicate if the GPT is a suitable choice for you or not. They moved in without being guided by maps and GPS and without your functional ultra-light gear. But before we set out we were told by locals that the landlord does not let pass any backpackers. Therefore I try what is in my power that this invitation does not get abused. And in between these two unlike areas â in between the dry plains in the east and the humid fjords in the west - tower the Patagonian Andes. Good navigational skills are essential since the route is mostly unmarked. They applied a lot of the ultra-light principals but not so much to go fast but to get far. See also the wikipedia article to Mate for more information. Most of the trail is on the Chilean side where only the regions AysÃ©n and Magallanes further south are traditionally considered part of Patagonia. Shops rarely have posted hours and even if they do, these are not observed. Their diet is varied and includes small and medium mammals, carrion, birds, reptiles and fruits. This work of art displays fascinating impressions from the trail and highlights their cultural experience with the settlers and the natives along the route. The trail will change you plans without asking and inevitably stop you from time to time and turn you around. When walking this road on a sunny day it appears hardly conceivable that at the very same spot someone froze to death but the memorials witness it. It keeps you completely dry and warm even when fording glacier rivers. If you donât make it to the end of this article than better donât start with the GPT. Racism dominated the thinking at this time and the ruling class where mostly decedents of white Europeans and they were looking for people of their kind to repopulate the land. The menu contains some world famous dishes, but mainly courses of unknown exotic ingredients in unexpected combinations. This ongoing update currently results in inconsistencies of this trail documentation. With the term settler I refer to the people that call themselves âpobladoresâ and whoâs ancestors moved into Patagonia at the end of the 19th century and during the 20th century. The animals that they watch over are normally owned by several farmers that pay for the service to fatten their animals during the mountain grazing period. One-way only! Some of these optional routes are just exit and escape routes and not particularly attractive for hiking but numerous options will get into more remote and challenging back-country. One of the most important skills before you depart is your capability to read. When I reviewed our hikes on Google Earth I also noticed with surprise that these trails are often visible on the satellite images, in particular in areas without dense forest. The typical incubation time is 1 to 3 weeks but also cases with 3 to 45 days between the suspected exposure and the disease outbreak have been reported. Do not be shy in these circumstances, ring the bell and be prepared to wait patiently. By using this documentation you agree that the author is not liable for any injuries, losses and damages in connection with the use of this information. But there are a few exceptions; some are already briefly mentioned above under Hiking Direction. These trail are spread over the entire country to promote and facilitate access into the Chilean countryside for the local population. This region and this route network is unequal in nature. There is one lesson that I learned from Garrett (and also others that are not cited here). Iâm not attempting to provide a comprehensive introduction to the Chile and Argentina with the following paragraphs. The not visible parts were searched when hiking this trail. There are attractive and suitable trails and packraft routes south of Lago Viedma but there are three logistical challenges that currently impede a feasible and continuous southern extension of the GPT without significant road walking: Overcoming these challenges is not impossible but attempting a continuous southbound extension makes out of an already very challenging long distance hike a bureaucratic and probably quite expensive expedition. Most of this section was planned using Google Earth and Bing Maps. Severe weather, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes can destroy or alter a route and if not maintained vegetation can completely close a trail within a few years in particular in the tempered rain forest. We hiked this route in 2007. He even got T-shirts printed proclaiming this ambitious plan. A packraft does not carry only your backpack but it carries you! You can download the currently still incomplete version of the Hikers Manual here: Hikers Manual on Dropbox. If weather is unsuitable for packrafting take the alternative hiking options around the water or simply wait for better weather but do not jeopardize yourself. Flour is i.e. The only reliable way to navigate on the GPT is therefore a GPS with the digital track and waypoint documentation that was specifically created for the GPT. After an displeasing exchange of emails he actually started to exchange names to stop the inappropriate use of the trail name. Condition 1: The author does not make any warranties about the completeness, reliability and accuracy of this document and the related trail files. South of Temuco you do not find any more a continuous high mountain chain. If you packraft you can paddle over these lakes and float down these rivers all the way into the Patagonian fjords where the Pacific Ocean hits the ragged coast. Therefore I will not go into detail and will not attempt to write a general outdoor guidebook. The entire network of tracks (currently more than 12â000 km) is more than four times the length of the trail (approx. An experienced thru-hiker may disagree as 3000 km is a bit shorter than the Appalachian Trail (AT) but the varied and unpredictable terrain makes this comparison inadequate. The regular packrafting route was planned with Google Earth and Bing Maps. I assumed that hikers that intend a long demanding walk will be respectful and considerate visitors and will use this material and the trail name appropriately. Be aware that small streams and rivers that origin at the flanks of a volcano often rise immediately and become instantly impassable during an eruption. The panoramio images of Mono Andes indicate a possible traverse over the Meseta de Malonehue which we incorporated into the GPT. He completed this 30,608 km km long journey on foot in 2,425 days and documented this truly epic hike in his book "The Longest Walk" (1988). The routes that the GPT is composed of include: For more information to the trail types and the trail type composition of the GPT see section Trail Length and Trail Types. This trail definitely has easier sections, but I cannot remember a day where I didn't look at my compass and/or GPS along the entirety of the GPT. If you advocate connecting footsteps get emotionally prepared that you may need to make compromises. This government was quite successful in fighting extreme poverty and improving the infrastructure in rural areas. It can upset land owner and cause distrust with settlers who may deny the right of way to future hikers. Before findings this trail on this map I considered a challanging cross-country traverse to the river Polcura because I could not find any suitable trail on the Google Earth satellite images due to the dense forest. The inReach uses the more reliable Iridium satellite network that covers in particular the area towards the poles much better what favours its use in Patagonia. Do you know how to cook your meals in the outdoors? The Fundo Huililco is located on a potentially more attractive route that leads directly from Currarehue to the Laguna Blanca on the base of the volcano Quetrupillan. Announcements were placed in European newspapers promising free land to everyone who is able to make a living off the land that he picked. Combine: If you want to spend more time on the trail and less time in buses and towns than add several sections into longer hiking legs without leaving the trail to resupply. Therefore do not leave any food outside of your tent but also not your smelly boots. Thatâs a difference of about 500 km. The main source of infection are inhaled aerosols of mice droppings. And if they sense it they will often not speak up (especially Chileans learned to swallow their objections during 17 years of a military dictatorship) but expect to receive reservation and poor service in turn. In these blogs you find a much more personal account that shows the individual perception of the trail. I have not seen yet the documentary but Iâm looking forward to watch their work. In summer and autumn they harvest the seeds of the Araucaria pines called "piÃ±ones". I was looking for a precise but well descriptive name. If you want to become a collaborator on this amazing project you are very welcome. Centuries of disrespect, economic and social pressure, the forceful formation of a new Chilean identity after the independence from Spain and missionary efforts of various Christian sects have caused deep divides in their communities and resulted in a fractured identity. Hypothermia can cause complete exhaustion and unconsciousness in less then 15 minutes if you get into a glacier lake with a water temperature at the freezing point. See also the wikipedia article to Photokeratitis. They covered 6,242 km during this 290 day journey. Southbound Access to Cordon Caulle: A very fiendly and helpful older couple lives at the northern access to the Cordon Caulle and volcano Puyehue. Packrafting gear is not cheap. I discovered in Google Earth and Bing Maps the trail from the Basecamp Descabezado to the Laguna Caracol and the volcano and lake Hornitos. Test the battery running times of your GPS and your emergency satellite communicator to plan your recharging on the trail. Estefania Chereguini and Walter Oszust initiated and developed the Huella Andina which is the recommended route for hikers in this section. There is plenty of terrain left till this trail finally reaches the southern tip of Patagonia and ends either on Cabo Forward at the shore of the Magellan street or even on Tierra del Fuego. When walking on the GPT you will regularly meet the third and fourth generation of these settlers all the way from section GPT15 to GPT38. Some rich landlords with huge plots employ guards and instruct them to deny access to anyone. If you are unable to continue it might take weeks or more for someone else to pass and mobile phone coverage is very limited along the trail. Make sure that you camp above the spring tide level. Otherwise I would probably not have discovered the packraft as the ideal hiking partner for Patagonia. The trail later crosses the homeland of the indigenous Pehuenche (one of the Mapuche tribes) where majestic Araucaria trees tower above the tribal land and provide the traditional food for these sometimes shy and sometimes proud people. These additional tracks are not recommended for hiking since they are often not particularly attractive but having these tracks on your GPS can save you in adverse conditions. I have provided my email in this article and with the current volume of requests I can normally arrange a Skype call if I see genuine interest and that the available information is being read and digested. Select and Skip: Readjust your plans while hiking. If you are lucky they have some fresh bread or "tortas" (the shortened word for "tortas fritas" which is bread baked in hot fat). When asking locals about the origin of this name we were told that some years ago two Pehuenche families were surprised by bad weather and seeked some protection at this boulder. If you are interested, you can listen to their stories while sitting around the warm stove and sharing the traditional drink of this region: Mate. I strongly recommend to read first Bethany's general advise to the GPT: Blog: so-you-wanna-hike-the-GPT, In addition you should read the blogs of Bethany and Lauren to the sections that you are planning to walk. Greater Patagonian Trail update My last day in Chile I was lucky enough to meet up with Jan Dudeck and his partner at the Santiago bus station . reservations for camp sites that must be made several months in advance which is not practical for such an unpredictable long distance hike. His fate and future is in the hands of the hikers that walk it in the coming years. Most puestos don't have a proper oven to bake bread but use the accumulated ash of the fireplace instead. Donât just carry this stuff but use it preventively. History canât be turned back and this past injustice can neither be undone without new injustice nor can it be plausibly justified. So "Greater Patagonia" applies very well to the entire trail region because all parts of the route are located not more then 100 km outside of the traditional limits of Patagonia. (...) For these reasons it is advisable to carry at least an extra day worth of food on many sections of the GPT. This way of writing simply feels more appropriate to me when providing such a trail documentation to the general public. The river Carrileufu from the Lago Cholila to the Lago Rivadavia appers calm and easy navigable on the satellite images which could be confirmed when floating down this river. Such hikers may resort to the established public trails in Patagonia that are better signposted and more suitable for classic navigation with paper maps. When going further south you will meet courageous settlers that have ventured into the challenging back-country of Patagonia. A good part of this section was planned using Google Earth and Bing Maps. This included terrain as well asâ culture. Also a few smaller sections need to verified and recorded and additional alternatives may be aggregated. get normally employed by the landowner that holds a large plot of land in the mountains. But for most hikers, and this includes me, the personal experience of the land and with the people are the dominating motives for such an endeavor. This is the only suiteable protection against hypothermia in case you get wet or you get out of the boat on the water. Garrett Martin, together with three other hikers came with the intention to create a documentary along the trail. The municipal administration of Cochamo published a hiking map showing the horse trail that are used and maintained by the local population that lives in the remote back-country. History canât be turned back and this past injustice can neither be undone without new injustice nor can it be plausibly justified. It was not until after our first hike that I could add additional hiking routes that render a packraft expendable but not less beneficial.
