Mirador del Torre, El Chalten
(4.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • After a tremendous hike the previous day to the 3 lagoon, we take this path of 3 km, very entertaining tour, with views of the Fitz Roy River and a lookout the waterfall Margarita. Co Tower is a slender needle of stone similar to a natural Obelisk, the day clear and warm accompanied the walk and the Pic Nic, in the afternoon started to El Calafate.

  • This option is good for people that do not have physical training, in my case were only 1 1/2 at El Chaltén and this was the walk that we choose since my wife was pregnant 3 months so could not make a great physical effort. It is a walk of 2 hrs going well tranqui passing through the viewpoint of a waterfall and stopping to take pictures or relax after a stretch of descent, end Fitz Roy with a beautiful view can be reached to the viewpoint of the tower and to the right to see and hear the birds singing.

  • Trails could be marked better. Switchbacks would be nice instead of steep climbs. Assortment of treks for all levels. And the views are breath taking.
