Torres del Paine National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Torres del Paine) is a national park encompassing mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers in southern Chilean Patagonia. The Cordillera del Paine is the centerpiece of the park. It lies in a transition area between the Magellanic subpolar forests and the Patagonian Steppes. The park borders Bernardo O'Higgins National Park to the west and the Los Glaciares National Park to the north in Argentine territory.
The panoramic view shows the imposing Paine Grande mountain, the Horns of Paine, and resting at the feet of both, Lake Pehoé. This National Park in the southernmost region of Chile, Magallanes, is famous for its cluster of mountains with odd shapes such as those in the right called Cuernos del Paine.
