  • A wonderful lake fed by the glacier. It takes about 3 hours to get there, around 10 km from El Chaltén. The trekking is relatively easy, we did it with our two boys of 13 and 10 yo. Previously to that, we had done the Base de las Torres del Paine and it was much more challenging.
  • A beautiful lagoon overlooking Mount Torre. There is a tent camp about 500 meters from the lagoon. The walk to the lagoon from the city is 9 kilometers long in one direction. The walk is very flat, with a total climb of about 240 meters.
