There is much history with this mountain, looking it up online Charles Darwin climbed it and found new fossils. We hiked Jan 24, 2016. Trail starts near kilometer 70 on route 9. The road was closed at 65km on route 9 with new bridge construction that is closed on weekends. This adds 5 km beach walk to the hike (doubles... More

Amazing hike to Mount Tarn, I took a guided tour because the road has changed lately, I went the first time and got lost, then I hired a local guide to climb it, he explained how the road has changed since they started to build a new road at the area.

Hiking is moderate to difficult, depending on the weather. On a summer clear day, it might take three hours to ascend and two to go down. There is water and ice at the top. The views are wonderful and the wind unbelievably strong. The path is clearly signaled all the way till the top. But a GPS is always handy.

The forest on this mount is fairly thick, the whole area is rarely dry due to its proximity to the ocean, spring and summer are the windiest seasons ( wind gusts normally strike 80-100 km/h at the summit). So bring the right gear (windproof jacket, light clothing but water resistant if not waterproof). The trail is non existant, You won't... More

You will probably have Monte Tarn to yourself, even during busy tourist season. There are snowfields at the top and beautiful views of the Strait of Magellan. Not to mention, plenty of experience with the infamous Chilean turbal (peat bogs) on the way up!
