Road to El Chalten Reviews
カラファテからエルシャルテンへ向かうルート４０の一部です。 道路沿いには川や湖があり、ラクダ科の「グァナコ」やキツネ、ウサギなども見ることができました。 道路わきの景色の良いところには駐車場も整備されています。 more »It is part of Route 40 from Calafate to El Charten. Along the road, there were rivers and lakes, and we could see "Guanaco", foxes, and rabbits from the Camel department. There is also a parking lot in the side of the road.

It culminates at 3400m while El Chalten is about 400 m above sea level. And the more you approach it the more majestic it is. We also line the beautiful Lake Viedma. If you are travelling by bus "Chalten travel" from El Calafate, ask for tickets 1, 2, 3 or 4 at the front of the bus upstairs by purchasing your ticket.
