Salto El Chorrillo, El Chalten

4.0
Half hidden by green woods traversed by many hiking trails, Salto El Chorrillo drops from a height of 20 m (66 ft). During cold winters, the waterfall freezes and becomes a location for practicing ice climbing. On warm sunny days, the big flat rocks and picnic grounds surrounding the waterfall offer opportunities for leisure and picnicking. Bring fresh water, a waterproof coat, and a camera.

  • A magical scenario that inspires poetry, in motion. The flowing water and easy access make it a first, second and third option for your hykes. Three Thumbs Up  more »
  • We hired a tour that included this ride and is very nice to reach the jump should do a walk which delves into a forest with incredible scenery. At the end of the tour you reach the jump, which is spectacular. I recommend it

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.
