Chile unveils Patagonian Route of Parks hiking trail

Chile has launched a huge hiking route through its Patagonian wilderness to boost tourism and highlight the need for conservation.

The Route of Parks covers 2,800km (1,740 miles) from the city of Puerto Montt down to Cape Horn.

The trail was the idea of Tompkins Conservation, the foundation set up by US billionaire Douglas Tompkins and his wife Kristine.

Last year the foundation donated vast amounts of land to Chile's government.

The land has helped create a network of 17 national parks and the new route - called the Patagonian Route of Parks - connects all of them.
