This is the most popular trek in El Chalten, and it is certainly one of the prettiest.
It leads us to the foot of the mythical Mount Fitz Roy. We pick you up from the hotel at 8am and drive 18kms to the trailhead at Hosteria El Pilar. We walk through a beech and ñires forest bordering the Rio Blanco, and after 1 hour we get to the first viewpoint with excellent views of the Piedras Blancas Glacier. Forty five more minutes and we arrive at the Poicennot camp, where we cross a hanging bridge over the river into Rio Blanco camp, a base for climbers.
From here, it is a 420 vertical metre hike up to the Laguna de los Tres viewpoint. The view of Fitz Roy Massif, the lagoon and its glaciers, is spectacular. A few metres away, you can also get a very good view of the Laguna Sucia. We then return to El Chalten on a path that passes past the Capri Laguna lookout.
