#2 of 6 in Trails in El Chalten
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.

  • This trail is probably the easiest to do. Little elevation and well signposted. The view from the tower is beautiful, even if you could not see the top of the Cerro Torre in the clouds (which seems to you quite often!) It makes you want to spend more time next time to make other trails (Fitz roy more easily visible in general)

  • Once we arrived at the Tower we decided to walk a couple of miles more to the viewpoint, we had one day with a lot of wind and clouds threatening, but at last we arrived. It gave us the feeling of having the Tower within the reach of our hands.

  • Very nice trail! Beautiful scenery! The first 3 km are with enough slope, but then it is fairly flat. Very nice view from the viewpoint of the Cerro Torre. But the most beautiful comes next. Arriving at the laguna Tower is a very nice view. But di climbing 2 km more to the Mirador Maestri reach the best of this path. Do not miss it! The Torre glacier and the large glacier are seen from above. Impressive!
