Whether rising from the sea, desert, or forest, these cliffs lure travelers with the promise of gorgeous scenery and adrenaline rushes.

Torres del Paine, Chile

1 of 16

The spectacular Torres del Paine comprises three granite monoliths that rise almost straight up from the pampas of southern Chile’s Patagonia region. The name blends the Spanish word for towers (torres) and the old Tehuelche Indian name for blue—the color of the vertical wall in certain light.

Highlight: Staring up at the towers while floating on your back in the glacier-fed lake at Base de los Torres.
