Travel Blogs from El Chalten

Bus journeys and express hiking

A travel blog entry by mattyjordan


... we had a bit of time before the sun set at 8pm so we decided to try and fit at least one hike in today. The shortest hike to an interesting destination was the hike to a waterfall, which was said to be really easy.The walk was kind of boring as it was just along a dirt road (you can drive there) but as we got closer to the falls we were greeted by beautiful autumn trees with insane colouration. We followed the trees to the stunning waterfall, filled our water bottles from the ...

Amazing trekking in El Chalten

A travel blog entry by nloon


... we had a few beers in the sunshine and a place called Domo Blanco that we reckon makes the best ice cream in Central and South America, delicious!
The next day Ireland were playing England in the six nations. We hadn't managed to see or even listen to either of the previous games so seeing as it was conveniently on ESPN in the hostel we decided to take the day off and settled down to watch the match with our Irish flag, some beers and empanadas.

... to the Cerro Torre trail, and again skip the horrible last bit. Turns out to be a great decision !

Up early, we toil up off the valley floor with Cerro Fitz Roy looking impassively down on us - "Ha ! What are you up to" it seems to be saying. We hike through forest, scrub, grass clearings and come to the basic camp, and confirm a great view of the mountain can be had while resting by a small stream at the foot of the nasty bit. We also need to mention the wind. ...

Hiking Capital of Argentina

A travel blog entry by pric5457


... over my head. The Argentine and I were able to take a small hour long hike up to a beautiful waterfall and enjoy our time there. From there we returned, cooked dinner, and I was able to enjoy my last night in El Chalten.

The next day I was off to El Calafate. It was a three hour bus ride, and then a short walk to my hostel. I was the most disappointed going there, because I had no time to go on any excursions (it was just the closest place ...
