Mirador del Torre, El Chalten

4.7
#4 of 6 in Sightseeing in El Chalten
Lookout Tourist Spot
Hike up to Mirador del Torre, a viewpoint offering priceless vistas of some of the most famous and prominent peaks in the range. A favorite route among those with limited time to explore the area, this trail does present a challenge for inexperienced hikers, but it is well signposted and relatively short. The vista at the end of the route is well worth the effort, with snowcapped peaks, glacial valleys, and pines providing ideal backdrops for dramatic photos.

  • When the time is open to visçao is amazing. The walk is easy, can be done in half a day depending on the pace of your walk.

  • A moderate treaking done around 2 hours. Go with lighter warm clothes even in winter. Give preference to reach the mirador around 15:00 because the Sun is more beautiful and decrease the chances of the towers are capped by the clouds.

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.
