Fitz Roy Reviews
Llegue al cerro Fitz Roy por el sendero de la Hosteria del pilar. En todo momento tenes al cerro , mientras que caminas por el bosque. Al llegar la laguna de los tres estaba congelada. Hermosa laguna ... more »Arrive at Fitz Roy Hill by the path of the Hosteria del Pilar. At all times you have the hill while you walk through the forest. When the lagoon of the three arrived, it was frozen. Beautiful lagoon in all its seasons. Recommendation, check the weather of the trips that remain in the chalten, and make this trail at best.
Magnifique balade sans difficulté à part le dernier km et la longueur. Le départ côté Piedras Blancas est top et évite de faire l'aller et le retour sur le même sentier. Arrivé au sommet, ne pas oubli... more »Beautiful walk without difficulty apart from the last km and the length. The start on the Piedras Blancas side is top notch and avoids going back and forth on the same trail. Arriving at the summit, do not forget to discover the magnificent panorama of Lake Suiça, on the left.
Good luck trying to get a good view. Mountain is surrounded by clouds most of the time, but once you do, its very rewarding
There's a reason it's famous. Easy 5 stars, enjoy! :P
