“Short, Easy Hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This 2-hour hike is a great one to do if you've arrived on the early afternoon bus to Chalten and have a couple of hours to spare before dinner. The only downside to this is the rather dusty dirt road you had to walk along to get to the waterfall. There are also no trees along the road so it gets very hot in the afternoons. Bring your swim clothes so you can enjoy the waterfall fully.

“Beautiful falls amid the arid plain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Only downside here was being on the dusty road for most of the walk over. Whenever a car went by, we'd get dust on us. But it's short (< 1 hr), flat, and a beautiful reward of a waterfall at the end.
Great choice if you come in on an afternoon bus and are trying to figure out what you can do with just a couple hours of daylight left.

“Beautiful Waterfall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Beautiful waterfall outside El Chaltén, on the road to El Pilár. The walk to the falls from the car park is more than the stated 200m, but it is well worth the effort.
