Cerro Torre, Patagonia

4.9
#102 of 181 in Nature in Patagonia
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. You can plan Patagonia trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • It is a very easy, almost everything trek flat. There are just a lot of wind at the end and it is common. I recommend to go as far as possible along the Lake because it is the most beautiful point of view.

  • A must stop if you are visiting Patagonia area. An easy trekking from El Chalten, incredible landscapes make you discover a special special Argentina. Autumn is a season to consider if you are passionate about photography
  • Absolutely stop here if you're in town to see Fitz Roy. A huge glacier sits at the foot of this prominent tower mountain. Better yet, spend a few days backpacking through the many picturesque trails in this park. Even if you get rained on, it will be worth it.
  • An easy hike from El Chalten with amazing views the whole way.
  • Beautiful. Not as crowded as Fitz Roy!
  • Just an amazing place!
