Mirador del Torre, El Chalten

(340+ reviews on the web)
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. See Mirador del Torre and all El Chalten has to offer by arranging your trip with our El Chalten trip itinerary maker.
