  • This mountain is simply breathtaking to watch. Granted there are plenty of beautiful views from lower down and therefore you don't have to really climb up to Laguna de los Tres, but for nature lovers....  more

  • Extremely beautiful area, perfect for some long hikes. Be aware that very often the top of the mountain is covered in clouds. The hike up to the Laguna de los tres is worth the effort as you have...

  • There are plenty of great views in Patagonia but I think this one is the best. You see Fiztroy from the road coming in, and it is the best 'small' collection of mountains I have seen in the world...

  • 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.
