Don't start a fire Nov 08, 2016
It was at Laguna Azul that we learned about the dangers of fire in the national park. In February 2005, a Czech visitor started a fire here when his camp stove (something that is forbidden in the open areas of the park) fell over. The fire burned for about ten days, destroying 155 square kilometres (60 square miles) of the park, including a large tract of native forest. The Czech government offered aid after the fire and donated US$ 1 million to the reforestation of this area.

Please don’t be the next idiot to cause such a catastrophe. Follow the park rules (http://www.parquetorresdelpaine.cl/en/normas-obligatorias), don’t use open fires anywhere, and only use portable stoves in designated camping areas. And if you must smoke, carry out all cigarette butts with the rest of your rubbish.
