  • The hike leading up to this is actually pretty damn boring if you're an experienced hiker (I am no way experienced, but I've done enough to know). There's not particularly anything impressive to see for the first 7km but when you arrive at the end, it's all totally worth it as the views are pretty damn stunning. Would recommend this hike especially as it's free.
  • Beautiful! I enjoyed so much just sitting next to the Laguna
  • A gorgeous hike to Laguna Torre, one of many starting at El Chalten. This took 6 hours, but the scenery was amazing.
  • Good day hike.
  • Breath takingly beautiful (even when the peaks are not visible)
