This is a "must go" place. Ok, you have to walk a lot, but the view is pretty good! This is a trekking activity, the trail is well market, so you can go by your own but use a goor shoes and bring some meal with you.

The view from location is great. But not only the view, the landscape is very colorful and offers view on many different flora from forests to grass fields.

A fairly easy hike from El Chaltén, about half way to Laguna Torre, with one short rocky section. At the Mirador (viewpoint) there is a painting of the view, in case you don't get to see the real thing (like me!)

It takes about 75-90 minutes to get to this view point, and it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful ones you'll see for such minimal physical effort. I recommend to start early though as the afternoons tend to get cloudier. Simply unmissable!

The total time spent for the parking lot to the top and back was 7 hours. The hike is manageable for most fitness levels. The first portion is a moderately steep climb on a well maintained path. The middle portion is fairly flat to rolling through the forest. The last hour is very steep up boulders and through the stream... More

Apparently the certo torre is a lot harder to see than the more famous Fitz-Roy. Hence if you have a choice try to do it on the clearest day. I's a 3.5 km walk from El Chaltén with a bit of uphill buth rather easy.

We trekked this route on the first and last day we were in El Chalten. It's a very easy walk and you can do it in 2-2:30hrs. Once at the Mirador, the view is just stunning and you will not want to leave!

If you're going to el chalten you can't miss this 3h walk. Easy trekking, the trails are well signed. Impossible to get lost. And very rewarding view of the laguna torre.

Trails could be marked better. Switchbacks would be nice instead of steep climbs. Assortment of treks for all levels. And the views are breath taking.

If you go to the cute, little town of El Chalten, most likely you do that for it many hiking opportunities and Mirador del Torre is one of the easiest and most beautiful, especially on a clear, sunny day. At the end of the hike the view of Fitz Roy is breathtaking and it is a view and a hike... More
