Torres del Paine Hiking Guide. Cicerone, 2010. Guide book to treks in the Torres del Paine National Park, with emphasis on low-impact trekking. Routes include the Torres del Paine Circuit (10-11 days), Half Circuit (4-5 days) and other 2-day treks: Laguna Verde, Rio Pingo and Laguna Azul. Many other routes and information on mountain refuges and how to link routes together. Trekking in Torres del Paine - a national park since 1959 and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 1978 - is a hugely rewarding experience. The Torres del Paine Circuit (a circuit of the park, and the main route described in this guide) is without any doubt one of the world's truly great treks, an opportunity to travel through awe-inspiring mountain scenery in an area with a fascinating history and rich in wildlife. Trails are for the most part clear and well marked within the national park, there is a comprehensive network of huts and campsites, and transport both to and within the park is all refreshingly simple.

Chile South & Patagonia Travel Map. 1:1,250,000 & 1:2,000,000. ITMB, December 2011. This map concentrates on the fast-changing southern portion of Chile (known as the Austral) and Patagonia, which technically only exists in southern Argentina, but in reality can't be shown easily on a map without including the same area in Chile. Thus, one side concentrates on Chile south of Los Angeles (yes, there's one there too!) in two long strip maps that go all the way to Cape Horn south of Tierra del Fuego. Although it has nothing to do with this part of Chile, ITMB have also included the main portion of touristic Easter Island, an inset of what is popularly referred to as Robinson Crusoe Island (Alexander Selkirk was marooned here for a number of years, and is the real-life model of the fictional Crusoe) and an inset map of Ushuaia. The other side shows all of Chile from Temuco south, and all of Argentina from Neuquen and Bahia Blanca south, with the Falklands correctly positioned in the South Atlantic.
