Glaciar Piedras Blancas, El Chalten

4.8
#7 of 9 in Nature in El Chalten
A peaceful hike through the forest takes you to Glaciar Piedras Blancas, a stunning glacier and lake. Part of the Glacier National Park, the heavily wooded area makes a perfect setting for a long but scenic trek along the rushing Rio Blanco. When you reach the lookout point, you can admire the icy cascade descending from a Mount Fitzroy cliff. Keep your eyes peeled--you might even see chunks of ice detaching from the glacier and falling into the lake below.

  • Worth the effort to get, a unique place. Leaving Poincenot camp instead of going to the Fitz, he turns to the right and is advanced on the path to the Piedras Blancas glacier

  • Beautiful view of the glacier and the lagoon with the fitz roy in the background showing its other face. The path does not have greater difficulty

  • One of the most beautiful viewpoints in the Park. The 1 hour of camping Poincenot, it's worth it to sit down and spend some time admiring the scenery.
