Salto El Chorrillo, El Chalten

(950+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
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.
