Beautiful!

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... read more

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

Some of the more relaxing hiking routes not as steep as other, this is well worth the hike for the views - it can get pretty windy though so take plenty of layers just in case coming back down we experienced winds of upto 80km per hour

It is a beautiful and easy hike. About 2h30 to 3 hours round trip. Going through the woods and then the beautiful view on Fitz Roy is waiting for you. Along the way other beautiful views of the town and of the valley going to laguna del desertio.

Well worth the visit. The views of the lake, mountains, snow and glaciers out of this world. Some parts of the hike were challenging

We turned back just a half a kilometer short of the finish due to high winds, but the terrain was stunning. The hike walks up from the town, and you see the entire town from above as you walk out. Passing through woods and meadows, the trail arrives at a denuded meadow for the last kilometer. Beautiful!

After spending 6 days in the national park, we can confirm that was the best view you can get. 24 km roundtrip from the city is pretty easy except for the last part. There a 2 miradors at the end but if you don't hike the last steep part, you will have waste your time. Do it even if you... More

If the 8 hour trek up to the Torres is too much for you then don't miss the hike to the Mirador. It is a pleasant and mostly flat walk, past the lake and the through the burnt forest with extraordinary natural sculptures along the way. .
