  • On the day of arrival or departure, or when you have half a day this is the ideal route. As with all trekking in this area the added value given by the wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and in particular on Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, then it is necessary to look for a clear day that allows optimum view. From the top you can also see the Viedma Lake on the opposite side.

  • Very good destinations for a pan of El Chalten and its mountains. Pure hike a warm-up.

  • For rest of the heavier tracks or to do something quickly, the trails of viewpoints are great. The two begin at the information center at the entrance of the city. On the Condors have a view of the city, the river and the mountains (on a clear day). The Aguilas, the views of the other side, with the Viedma Lake to the bottom. It's good to take because a lot of wind to get coat on top.
