The hike up to Loma del Pliegue Tumbado is a lovely gradual climb to a great vista point for looking at Mt Fitzroy and – if you are lucky – Cerro Torre. Don’t drink from the streams lower down, as there are animals grazing. Higher up, in the open rock country, you can drink from the one stream the trail... More

We've hiked most of the trails around El Chalten and this hike was especially nice due to the fact the trail was uncrowded, the slope was gentle (but pretty consistently upward), and the vista at the end was fantastic. We ran into a herd of cattle on the trail in both directions which seemed a bit intimidating at first (especially... More

Not many travellers hike this trail which I am thankful for. After trekking to Laguna de los Tres, it was a relief to not have to share this trail with hundreds of others. The hike was more peaceful and I had more of a wilderness experience. The landscape and scenery is amazing along the entire trail. The trail itself is... More

Often overlooked in favor of Laguna de los tres and laguna Torre, this was my favorite of the 3 hikes I did in El Chalten. In my opinion, the summit offers the best panoramic views of the various peaks including Mt Fitz Roy, cerro Torre and several glaciers and lakes such as cerro glacier and Laguna Torre and Capri. Similar... More

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... More

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... More

This is one of the best day hikes we have done. The views at the top are simply amazing. I would strongly recommend making this the hike you choose to do on a clear day in El Chalten.

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.
