  • 12km walk with some rough part and trails but worthy. The landscape, forest and the lake worth the walk for sure. Plan to spent the day, in any case you will get exhausted.  more »
  • The laguna Tower is gorgeous, the walk is great takes an entire day. The starting point of the trail are 9 km, but this is only the distance of the trip, consider more 9 to the Cola. IE needs a clusters all day to do the walk.

  • In this village/park, there is nothing bad or wrong!
  • Breath taking!

Where to stay in El Chalten

Thanks to the city's small size, almost all of the accommodation options in El Chalten are within easy walking distance of anything of note in town. Most "hotels" are in fact cozy alpine-style lodges catering to international visitors, and tend to be on the pricier side due to their upscale amenities. Alternatively, you can stay in one of the many campsites outside town, though weather here can be harsh. During the high season in January and February, you'll need to book at least a month or two in advance as lodging fills up fast. Keep in mind that El Chalten depends heavily on seasonal tourism for its income, and many hotels and lodges, particularly smaller, family-run affairs, close down during the winter off-season. On the flip side, many of those that remain open offer lower winter rates.
