About This Spot

The gorge offers quite a dramatic foreground, whether you walk right down to the edge for an intimate shot of the river or shoot a panoramic scene from slightly higher. This location is seldom photographed and thus offers some more unique opportunities with the Torres del Paine and Almirante Nieto as a backdrop.

Cascada Paine offers a similar shot, but with more water and less gorge. It’s one of those locations that feels like it has great potential, but it just never turns out quite the way you’d like it to. I prefer the gorge, but it might just be personal taste.
