El Chalten, Los Glaciares National Park
Los Glaciares National Park, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
El Chalten Half Day HikeThis photo is from one of favorite hikes in Los Glaciares National Park, the Loma del Pliegue Tumbado. The trail head is an easy walk from the town of El Chalten. I would rate it as a moderate hike. Their is some uphill involved, but manageable for anyone in fit condition. All along the way on a clear day you will see expansive views of the Cerro Fitzroy. You don't even have to reach the final summit if you are not up for it. I felt so joyful as I emerged from shaded forest into this clearing completely captured by this expansive meadow, and the backdrop of the mountains.
