A very easy hike where you can leave your mind behind and just walk and enjoy the nature and the tranquility.

A relatively level hike with just a few hills. Typical to have the spires lost in the clouds when you get to the lake, or to have big winds all the way up and back, but worth the effort. Interesting beech forest all the way.

This hike was one of our favorites while in El Chalten. It is long, about 20 km round trip, but the views along the way are amazing, and you end at the lake, where you can soak your tired feet in glacier water before heading...More

I did this trekking with friends, the weather was a bit tricky because the rain but it was worth it. This trail is not very difficult but a bit long.

Not active and chose this route as I think it's the easiest one. Not much hiking experience and never hiked alone, so this was a first for me. Went end of September, there weren't too many people, only about 10 or so people along the...More

Long hike with lots of up and down to a lovely lake at the foot of Cerro Torre. Mix of forest and meadow areas and some wetlands/small streams. Lots of birds along the trail (like Giant Woodpecker, Andean Condors, Patagonian parrots, and more. Unfortunately, the...More

Very simple walk starting from just outside of town. The paths are all well marked and are good underfoot the whole way to the lake. The only slightly unsteady part was the extra bit to a viewpoint on the other side of the lake. It...More

We were very lucky with the weather - no wind, no clouds, clear sun! And almost all the way to the Laguna Torre you see Cerro Torre! The walk is quite easy - 9 km from town center - 2 or 3 climbs for not...More

Hello! Some friends and I are visiting Argentina the first two weeks of May. I am trying to figure out if hiking from El Chalten is possible during this time? Seems like the town will be partially shut down, but that we might just be sneaking in before the weather gets really cold/snowy? Any insight would be great!
