EL CHALTEN ARGENTINA: ARGENTINAS HIKING Scholarship

Previously, I had a 5 day hike through Torres del Paine, followed by hiking for a few days around Tierra del Fuego. Needless to say, my shoes and toes were slightly worn out when it reached El Chalten in Argentina. Out of the bus station, I looked up and saw that this small village was separated by two huge stone walls. I know rightly that my feet are in a little more violent. Signs that. The ‘Capital of the Climbers of Argentina’ also helps.

In the afternoon I came to unfavorable weather. Most of the rainforests and hills are covered by hiking, so I spend the day preparing for hiking the next day, eating pizza and gathering a few hikers. (Not difficult because it is the only thing to do in El Chalten)

The sun is shining the next morning. The first trip of the El Chalten adventure I was filming was the famous ‘Laguna de los Tres’ and beautiful views of Mount Fitz Roy, instead of walking back and forth from El Chalten itself. We live in Los Glaciares National Park. We choose to transfer to another route and walk up to 25 km from point A to B through Laguna de los Tres mirador.

The beginning of hiking is pretty easy, pretty flat and has shades of gray and gives a panoramic view of Mount Fitz Roy in the background.

Walk for a few hours, so take some photos and enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the campgrounds. No hiking completed without my salami sandwich lunch. After lunch we headed up and headed out the camp toward the mirador. This involved an hour-long rise. This part of the hike was open to the elements and involves crossing a few river flows with delicious drinking water.

Up to the steep mirador, but not too difficult and full of people. It’s like a highway through marked mountains, and with people heading in both directions. We walked slowly and steadily with very little time. When we arrived at ‘Laguna de los Tres’, we were greeted with one of the most beautiful views of Patagonia.

Then we enjoy hiking around mirador and Tres Lagunas. There are colorful lakes, hanging glaciers and beautiful mountains. Fitzpatrick is not going to be a better day.

When we consider our time in mirador We headed back down the mountain through the camp and went to ‘Laguna Capri’. This part of the walk was there for us to cross through a flat, open area to the hot sun with Fitz Roy still. In the background

Laguna Capri is a breathtaking mountain lake where many hikers have taken a break for a quick snack break and perhaps a brave swim.

After a short break, it’s time to head home and head down the path to El Chalten. The end of the route is easy, without chaos and downhill. As we saw the small town of El Chalten creeping up in the distance, with the sun slowly setting my feet cheering, we almost went home.

Good Argentina steak dinner later. I go to bed at 7:00 am will arrive early and another 21 km. The trek is completed.

Laguna Torre, Grande Glacier and Cerro Torre are next to my Trekkers. I think this is a long day. We left at 7:30 in the morning heading up our first mirador. The first stage of hiking is probably the most difficult part, mostly hilly and with uneven trails. The first hour makes us sweat overflow. We stop at the beautiful mirador which gives a wide view of the Cerro Torre for splitting water and snacks.

The path that grew up was a little easier after that my close friend. (I got up the day before) and I talked injustice for two hours as we walked on a gentle slope up through the forest and open space.
