Create an itinerary including Chorillo del Salto
Half hidden by green woods traversed by many hiking trails, Chorillo del Salto drops from a height of 20 m (66 ft). During cold winters, the waterfall freezes and becomes a location for practicing ice climbing. On warm sunny days, the big flat rocks and picnic grounds surrounding the waterfall offer opportunities for leisure and picnicking. Bring fresh water, a waterproof coat, and a camera.

  • Easy to access and great place to go and have lunch
  • Beautiful falls and the landscape of the trial is very good with flowing river and distant snow capped mountains.
  • Nice day hike, about 6-7km from el chalten and back. Takes about 1-2 hours to walk. Not very challenging. Good hike for when visibility is bad outside
  • Nice short walk w/o difficulties to start when arriving to Chalten
  • This is a nice trial to do later in the day it has a toilet before reaching the waterfall.
