Laguna de los Tres, Los Glaciares National Park

5.0
#2 of 10 in Trails in Province of Santa Cruz
Hike to Laguna de los Tres, an emerald lagoon of glacier water on a track that reveals plenty of natural sights along the way. On your way up, you'll gain excellent views of the area's granite peaks, and perhaps even some condors flying overhead (bring your binoculars). The final stretch of the increasingly steep trail will also get you sights of the lagoon itself, with glaciers hanging from the slopes that surround it.

  • The hike is amazing, the whole trail is a great beautiful scenery. The road is not difficult to reach the last km, where it is all steep and irregular road, even so worth the effort, both the lagoon of the 3 and the Dirty Lagoon offer great views, a forced ride in El Chalten.

  • I want to invite you to make this trekk, although it is quite complicated the last stretch... It's worth it. But it is important to know that you have to go well prepared, be it comfortable clothes and a good shoe. Bring your food and fruits or sweet for all the way. If the journey is not very complex, if there is distance, are 10km to reach the lagoon, but you do it at your time and not feel it besides that you are contemplating every part of the path. I loved this place, El Chaltén itself... I consider it my place in the world; But I emphasize the last 400 mtrs, the same is a stone road on the rise and every time is steeper, take your time, breathe, make sure you have water and first of all consult the weather! Because it changes a lot. Luckily my day was sunny and "hot" but very windy and cold. The weather changes and you don't realize it.
