It was a beautiful place to watch the sunset. Hope for a clear day so you can see the peaks of the mountain ranges!

Great hike. We unfortunately did not have clear weather and did not get to see Fitz Roy. The hike was still worth it! The last mile or so is quite a challenge as it is steep with lots of rocks and uneven steps.

A nice roundabout hike takes you from a trailhead near the center of El Chaltén up to Mirador del Torre and around to a little marked descent towards the other limit of town, where the trailhead towards Fitz Roy proper is located.

This is a moderate hike (in good weather) which results in a fabulous destination. Wear a good pair of hiking books, bring light, healthy snacks, water and a wind breaker. The winds can be very forceful.

When you walk up to that rim and see those peaks...your heart will stop. If you love the outdoors this is a must for sure...we loved it so much!

El Chalten is trekking mecca. This trail is very scenic that can be done by most people. We enjoyed the landscape and challenge of the hikes.

For my first day in El Chalten, I went with a guide to the Mirador del Torre, coming back via Laguna Capri. Glorious views!

Hike up to Mirador del Torre, a viewpoint offering priceless vistas of some of the most famous and prominent peaks in the range. A favorite route among those with limited time to explore the area, this trail does present a challenge for inexperienced hikers, but...More

Absolutely spectacular and worth the hike up. We had a wonderful guide named Marcello who explained the different types of flora and fauna in the area. We are coming back next year and exploring more of this wonderful place.

We left El Chalten early to catch a sunrise view of Cerro Torre and we have not been disappointed. Trail was really moderate up to the Mirador
