El Chalten

Walking/Hiking - Argentina - Latin America

Located in the Cruz Province in Argentina, El Chalten is a small village built on the mountainous area.  Its surrounding area consists of two popular mountains; Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, of which both are well-preferred for climbing. Historically speaking, it was established to secure a dispute in the borders of Chile. Currently, it is only used for tourism and has taken second place in the ranking of "Best cities in the world to know" of the travel guide Lonely Planet. The villagers cater to the tourist, who in turn become a source of income to them.

"Great base for Laguna De los Tres trek"

El Chalten is a great spot for trekkers, with outstanding trails beneath Mount Fitzroy to explore! My favourite is undoubtedly the Laguna De los Tres trek, with absolutely stunning scenery and up-close glacier encounters.
