Mirador de los Condores, Merlo

4.4
#2 of 7 in Sightseeing in Merlo
Lookout Tourist Spot
From the top of Mirador de los Condores visitors are treated to views of the sprawling city below and the surrounding landscape. Hike this 1 km (.62 mil) trail, which begins at the visitor center in El Chalten and takes you to the lookout point. Sample a baked good from the bakery perched on top while you soak up the view. At a height of 2,200 m (7,217 ft), this panoramic lookout towers above the peaks around you. If you have a car, driving up is fairly easy, but walking is by far the more scenic option. Put Mirador de los Condores on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Merlo vacation planner.
