The Chilean highway Route 9 (9-CH) runs from the Brunswick Peninsula south of Punta Arenas north to Paso Baguales Oriental at the border with Argentina in Torres del Paine commune. Route 9-CH is the main highway of Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, and to travel between Route 9-CH and Chilean highways north of Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region vehicles have to pass through Argentina.

During the White Earthquake of 1995 a number of cars and two buses with passengers were trapped in the snow along the route.[1][2]
