Hi,

I thought the Torres del Paine track was a five day guided walk in Patagonia ? The Tongariro Crossing is a day walk.

Cheers,

You might possibly ask at Lonely Planet. My best guess is that someone, likely from the US, Chile, or NZ, will have done somewhat similar walks in Chile and the South Island of New Zealand.

The New Zealand Department of Conservation classifies walks throughout the country. http://www.doc.govt.nz/walkingandtramping

Here's the specifics

What section of the walk did you do in Torres del Paine?

Unfortunately, we were met with unrelenting gale force winds to do any of it.

Thank you, i got an idea by looking at the classification. I guess is a bit more difficult than the 7h hike we did in Chile, but it should be ok.
