Argentina - El Chalten

20 °C

In contrast to El Calafate, Chalten is a small town nestled in a valley surrounded by magnificent hills and mountains including Mt Fitzroy. We stayed in town and did day walks from the town, which was a nice relief after camping at Torres Del Paine! There were various viewpoints we walked to for magnificent views over the town and across over Mt Fitzroy range, and multiple surrounding glaciers.

And the 8hr day hike (with lots of photo taking) to Mt Fitzroy was a definite highlight. It was one of the most breathtaking views we have ever seen. There were great views of the mountain throughout the walk, and the surprise of two pristine sky blue lakes at the top miradore were a great reward!

Apart from sharing our dorm with some crazy Russians, we also bumped into some English and US guys we had met earlier in the trip who were good fun, so that gave us something to do in the quite town most evenings!
