  • Arrive at Fitz Roy Hill by the path of the Hosteria del Pilar. At all times you have the hill while you walk through the forest. When the lagoon of the three arrived, it was frozen. Beautiful lagoon in all its seasons. Recommendation, check the weather of the trips that remain in the chalten, and make this trail at best.

  • Beautiful walk without difficulty apart from the last km and the length. The start on the Piedras Blancas side is top notch and avoids going back and forth on the same trail. Arriving at the summit, do not forget to discover the magnificent panorama of Lake Suiça, on the left.

  • Good luck trying to get a good view. Mountain is surrounded by clouds most of the time, but once you do, its very rewarding
  • There's a reason it's famous. Easy 5 stars, enjoy! :P
  • Beast place, highly recommend this if you are in good shape, impressive views. Make sure the day is not foggy nor cloudy otherwise you won't see much despite the effort of the trekking.
  • Extremely nice mountain
  • Out of this world. Be sure to check out Glacier Piedras Blancas on the way down. It’s only half an hour walk. One hour round trip.
