  • Driving on the route from El Calafate from El Chaltén is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have visiting Argentine routes. The landscape is wonderful and if you got a sunny blue sky day is indescribable, featuring viewpoints on the main vantage points and it is in very good condition.

  • I have pictures of beautiful, both the asphalt to El Chalten as in erstrada of chao from Chalten Lake desert. Very interesting trail that is only made on foot or by bike from boat to the North edge of Lake desert and hence is 20 km walk from passing through the border to Chile to a pier where a boat navigates some 60 km across the Lake until Vill the ´ Higgins, end of famous Carretera Austral in Chile from Puerto Mont to Villa O'Higgins.
