Carratera Austral 5-9/2/21014 - Summary:
We went 4 Israelis, nobody knew the others much before. We had only 5 days, instead of 6, including the trip Chalten-Antiguas.

In El Chalten we did lots of trekking and admired the beautiful scenery. The longest trek we did in one day was 22km which we were very proud of, but in the trekking capital of Argentina it was still quite short.
Then we faced our fears ice climbing! Steve was very excited, I was very daunted! It was hard, scary and cold but a real achievement when we ...
