Rising above meandering green meadows and rocky spires is the Almirante Nieto Peak, forming the southeastern chunk of the Paine Massif. Fully surrounded by the Torres del Paine National Park in the south of Patagonia, the views are incredible and the climbing is top quality. Visit between the months of November and March for ideal mountain climbing conditions.
Located between the breathtaking Torres Del Paine and the Cuernos Del Paine stands the Almirante Nieto Peak in the deep Patagonian south of Chile. Held within the Torres Del Paine Park, it makes up the southeast section of the Paine Massif. Climbing the Nieto Peak provides unrivalled panoramic access to the entire park, and as such is a much sought after summit to scale.
The climate here is infamously unpredictable and adds to the challenge. The four seasons can pass through the area in a single day. Average temperatures here hover around 13°C in the warmer months.
