  • The trail warns at the beginning that it is payment, however does not have a standardized fee (varies by chance), there is no proof of payment (illegal). Would be better a poster that says "collaborations, donations, will, etc." Indicated us a price of AR$ 300 per person, and seeing that I just was going to pay left us 3 to the price of one. It is a little serious. The person in charge of the place said to be an "employee". The place is not missed. The trail is a low level of difficulty.

  • A tour of low demand but with all the elements that must be. Rivers, streams, forests, mountains, valleys, and the latent possibility meet with wildlife by its lower transit in comparison with other paths.

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.
