"Chorillo del Salto" Fitz Roy Things to Do Tip by barryg23
Fitz Roy Things to Do: 25 reviews and 67 photos
On our first full day in El Chalten we did a couple of easy hikes to warm up. We had arrived late the previous night after 11pm after a two day bus journey from Bariloche, so naturally we needed an easy start - the hike to Chorillo del Salto (Chorillo Waterfall) was a good choice for the first day.
The hike involved an 8km round trip to a small waterfall north of town along an easy to follow trail. In fact, the road to Lago del Desierto went nearly all the way to the falls and for the most part we walked parallel to Las Vueltas river, so it was impossible to get lost.
There were impressive views of the river along the way, as well as good views of town, but we couldn't see the far away spires of Fitz Roy - they would have to wait for another day. The waterfall was nowhere near as impressive as others we'd seen in Argentina, but all in all it was a good hike and good preparation for the longer treks to come.
