Cerro Torre, Patagonia

(30+ reviews on the web)
Mountain Nature / Park
Peaking at 3,133 m (10,280 ft), Cerro Torre offers you a chance to test your climbing abilities. Although not the only peak in Patagonia, this one comes as particularly demanding and difficult because of its shape and size. If you prefer to observe and save your leg strength for something else, do so from the glacial lake that faces the summit's eastern face. Plan to visit Cerro Torre and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended El Chalten attractions using our El Chalten trip generator.
