Our final day in Torres del Paine, and it was a beautiful one, spent exploring more of the phenomenal landscape, as well as conducting numerous interviews. A recurring theme we’ve heard expressed in our interviews here is a call for balance in the tourism industry. For example, many who work in the industry feel the government should set limits to the number of travelers visiting this area at any given time, to limit the impact that tourism is beginning to have on the natural environment. Listen as Charlie describes more about the interviews of the day, and the challenging but exhilarating horseback ride the team experienced galloping across the grasslands in the shadows of mountains.
