Salto El Chorrillo, El Chalten

(3.9/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Three Km with little effort. Since the Chaltén, right by the road that leads to the Lake of the desert. For people with mobility difficulty, take into account that the route is in its mayotia of gravel. A Km before arriving, has opened a trail something more friendly. If van by the afternoon, the Sun will give a very good photos of the waterfall, that not is giant... but if them like the nature, know appreciate it.

  • Is a path short, without any difficulty, almost flat. You can walk also along the route (which is gravel) and in the last section (surrounded by much greenery) footpath. Ideal for visiting family and suitable for all ages.
