Lagunas Altas is the flagship trail of the newly-established Patagonia National Park, a 750,000-acre protected area created through collaboration between Doug and Kris Tompkins, and the government of Chile. Lagunas Altas is a long day-hike trail near the park headquarters, with a steep ascent and panoramic views. It was named one of the “top 5 trails in Patagonia.”

The FKT route is a ~20km loop, as shown in this brochure:

Krissy Moehl, Jeff Browning, Luke Nelson, and myself ran this in 2015 in ~1h45.  I'm sure it's been done faster
