Glaciar Piedras Blancas, El Chalten

4.8
#7 of 10 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.

  • I didn't know I could get there, because if I had known I would have done this trail. When we passed by the Piedras Blancas Glacier, I was charmed with the beautiful view, pity that the place was full, and I ended up getting little time admiring this wonder

  • We went from hosteria del Pilar with three little girls of 6-6-8 years, it took us 2 hours of ida and 1.30 back, the road is of medium to high intensity to go with children but can be, it is convenient to carry lightweight but warm clothes because climate change much and they pas to be sheltered in t-shirt, landscape leaves you speechless, worth, carry water and a snack.

  • 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.
