I did the three major walks around El Chalten while I was in town: this one, Laguna Torre, and Laguna de los Tres (Fitz Roy), and I thought the views on this walk were the best by far. The walk is 10 km one way, with 1000 m elevation gain up to the summit of the hill, but that elevation... 更多
This hike is just as great as the Fitz Roy hike, maybe even better. The views at the end are amazing on a clear day. Cerro Torre, Laguna Torre, and Fitz Roy. When you get to the end of the hike you can already appreciate the great view, plus you have the option on your left to go up the... 更多
This is a less strenuous/busy hike than Fitzroy. It is really beautiful even when surrounded by cloud. really enjoyable :)
If you are time-constrained, make this hike a priority. The day hikes to Laguna Toro and Laguna de los Tres aren´t worth it - mostly flat, unchallenging, meager views. I ended up doing this hike on a clear day, and got a brilliant view of Fitz Roy and Torre. Near the end, the trail disappears. Just keep going up.
After 2 weeks trekking it is easy to become blaise about the views its only when you get home to review the picture you fully appreciate the scale and beauty of what you have seen and this another amazing hike and well worth the effort to fit it in the very packed itinerary.
We were very lucky that our visit to El Chalten coincided with a fabulous spell of settled weather with wall to wall sunshine. We did the more well known Laguna Torre and Laguna de los Tres walks (both very enjoyable but busy) but this one was much quieter and the views at the end stunning. It's the only walk where... 更多
The best trek in El Chalten. The first part is pretty easy. A nice walk through forests and fields with Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre in the background. The last part, maybe 20 minutes, is a bit hard and steep. But it's worth it! You get a 360-view you won't forget. Didn't know where to look first. Drop-dead-beautiful and if... 更多
This was my best day in El Chalten. The walk up was exhilarating though the last ascent was a bit brutal. The views are said to be the best in the area over th Fitzroy range and I can believe it. The round trip took me 7 hours and I really enjoyed it. Being over 70 and clean shaven I... 更多
