This morning I wake up with this interesting new about,  how Torres del Paine was chosen as the best trekking circuit in the World*.

But as a guide in Torres del Paine… make me think about it.. is really the best trek?? the world is humongous there are great places in the world with different environments and at the end is all how is the ” Personal Experience”.

I have had clients that always compare with Peru..probably the like more to be attended by the porters or the Himalayas with the tremendous mountains.. like the bigger the fish.. or the Denali.. or the Muirs Trail or the south Island. All of them have their mystery and prize.

Do I want to work in the best trekking circuit in the world?

NO… probably you are asking why.. it’s a lovely place..it’s great.. but some years ago NatGeo choose the best national parks in the world and we where second sharing it with the South Island and just below the Norwegian Fjords and the difference was the management in 2008 we have 141.026 visitors ( 39.190 Chileans 101.836 foreign). There are problems with sewer systems of the lodgings.. there are 22 park rangers for the 200.000 hectares, the trails are eroded, the roads are unpaved causing acoustic and dust pollution to the habitat of flora and fauna around them.

And I don’t even want to start talking about the business man’s and how they take advantage of the people. But working 12-14 hours shifts for 12 days and 3 days off… in this paradise.. is like birds in a cage

Despite this… the criteria* of how the choose it the what I like.. it seems to be partial. Some of them are writed by travellers others finance by magazines for a profit.

For me….

Is the best place where I can live and work
