Hike to Chorrillo del Salto - Trekking El Chaltén - Argentina

One of the easiest hikes in Los Glaciares National Park leads to the pretty Chorrillo del Salto waterfall. The path is well-marked and leaves from Route 23, the road toward Lago del Desierto, about five kilometers beyond El Chaltén. The path cuts through the forests near the Río de las Vueltas before arriving at the 20 meter waterfall. The roundtrip hike can be done in a couple hours.
