I want to travel from El Chalten up to Pto Montt to catch the ferry over to Chiloe. How is the best way to do this?
we are planning a trip to El Chalten in March 2007. We bought the useful book "Trekking in the Patagonian Andes" but unfortunately it does not contain any GPS waypoints.
Could anyone please provide us with the GPS waypoints for
Laguna de los Tres
Campamento Rio Blanco / Poincenot / Agostini
Glaciar Piedras Blances
Mirador Cerro Terro
Thank you in advance ! Any hints for hiking in this area are very welcome.
is it possible to go to el chalten in April?
when would be the latest?
i am staying in el calafate with 2 friends, and we plan on hiking in Fitz Roy for 3-4 days. we have contacted several tour companies, and they are charging ~$800 for a private guide. is this expensive, and is there a cheaper way of finding a group to join once we get to el chalten? i would prefer to go with a group.
We plan a trip to Patagonia in January and I thought to stay, among others, in for a couple of days, and taking several short walks of 2-3 hours each. One opinion that I got says bad idea - all the area is steep, mainly for mountain climbing by experienced sportsman or at least trekkers in good shape; the other opinion says good idea, since there are plenty of easy walks, for all ages and fitness. What is your experience? Any advice will be appreciated.
