Trek along the scenic route to Glaciar Huemul to see a small but impressive glacier, and by far the most accessible one in the region.

  • The truth is a unique place, quiet, without so many people. Recommended 100%. The trail is short but very steep

  • A short trekking, passing through a spectacular forest, you reach an incredible lagoon, with the glacier in the background.

  • B e a utifull place, is about 23km north from el chalten (which is the only downside) near "Lago del desierto". Is an hour hike that is not Hard and you will enjoy the hole ride. If you hire the tour guide, and you like relax with a great view, i would recommend to take more than the 2 hours tour.
