The hike to Mt. Fitz Roy and Laguna de los Tres is definitely the must-do hike from El Chalten, but this is a beautiful mountain and the hike is much more moderate. The mountain is in view (on a good weather day) for a majority...More

As mentioned before, the weather can be the worst enemy for this hike. The wind was incredibly strong building some nice waves on the Laguna Torre... It is not a difficult hike but, at least in the approach, the wind can really make it harder....More
