El Chalten

El Chaltén is a small and stunningly neat town in the province of Santa Cruz, near the border with Chile. It is situated at the foot of the Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre mountains and is therefore very popular with climbers and tracking enthusiasts. There are no historical sights or monuments here, as the city was constructed in 1985. But this disadvantage is more than compensated by the unusually beautiful nature. Before coming to El Chalten, tourists are instructed because it is located in the unique Los Glaciares National Park. The two most popular tourist routes lead to Mount Fitz Roy and Laguna Torre lake, from where you can climb to the Maestri observation deck. It is best to choose the track to the karst lagoon of Laguna de los Très for a walk through the reserve. The trail is quite easy to follow except for the last two kilometers.
