  • Trekking routes extend along the Blanco River from El Pilar. When you see the Piedras Brankas Glacier, you can see the mountains of Fitzroy behind you. In the local language, it was covered with clouds only to be said to be "Smoke mountain", but it showed the majestic figure when waiting for a while. There is a sense of presence and impressive.

  • Beast place, highly recommend this if you are in good shape, impressive views. Make sure the day is not foggy nor cloudy otherwise you won't see much despite the effort of the trekking.
  • Start your hike from El Chalten, spend all the day in this incredible part of Argentina, enjoying the nature. Do not forget to take picture, best season I suggest autumn. Bring with your a pair of sticks in order to better hike, overall during last 100m ascending, descending part.
