This walk is one of the legs of the W Tracks in TdP National Park. It's a beautiful walk on the whole, but be aware the last pay is a really strenuous climb up the moraine of the old glacier. There were a lot of people walking the track, with all levels of fitness, but just about everyone seemed to... More

Cerro Torre is considered one of the most hard climbs in the world.But you don't need to climb it to experience the mountain. The trail to the lake takes you very close to ''her''. Not easy, though. Be fit and take your time to do it.

You hear more about the climb up Los Tres, but this walk was our favourite. It helped that the weather was lovely, and the winds not too bad. Great views, constantly changing scenery, and just enough hard work to make it feel worth while. Return by a slightly different loop to get a taste of woodland walking.

For the ones who like trekking this is a good sendero to go trekking with beautiful views, not as difficult nor as long as Laguna de Los Tres. the trails are well signed and the view when you get to the Laguna is wonderful. Don't forget to bring something to eat, as the round trip is about 10km with hight... More

This granite needle is easy to see from the road coming from El Calafate to El Chalten. You can get closer by an easy trek of 20km (between 5 and 6 hours return) arriving at the lake on the base of the mountain with stunning views of the peaks around, the lake and the glaciers.

Second great hiking tour from El Chalten to the view of Cerro Torre, it takes you by nice valley with some main viewpoints, but all the time you can look around and be amazed.

Simply loved the hike to the lake below Cerro Torre. Amazing views and the lake had huge chunks of ice which added to the adventure. The steep vertical walls of Cerro Torre were extremely impressive. I understand first hand why this mountain is one of the most difficult peaks to summit in the world. Given the vertical walls and extreme... More

I went on 2 hikes in the area. One was to Lago Torre to get a ground view of the lake and surrounding panorama. The other was a hike to a Piego Tumbado (?) which was a largely uphill hike to get an amazing elevated view of the lake and Cerro Torre. Both hikes were enjoyable and the area in... More

As mentioned before, the weather can be the worst enemy for this hike. The wind was incredibly strong building some nice waves on the Laguna Torre... It is not a difficult hike but, at least in the approach, the wind can really make it harder. Nonetheless the view is just fantastic and makes any difficulties disappear from our minds.
