A legend in maritime annals, rounding this remote cape and sailing through the Drake Passage was one of the most challenging nautical routes on the planet for the clipper ships of the 18th-20th centuries that carried much of the world’s trade. That changed with the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914, which made for a much shorter and safer passage. The dividing line between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans runs along the meridian of Cape Horn, where the terrain is entirely treeless, although quite lush due to frequent precipitation.
