Great hike, awesome views - definitely worth the effort. Be sure to check out the other lookout that you can get to by following a track along the left side of the lake. This looks down on another beautiful lake and glacier. Can be ver windy up top.

This trekking tour asks everything, stamina, physical fitness,and patience. However, when you finally reach the very top it is just amazing, a truly spectacular view of the Fitz Roy, mirroring in the ice cold lake. This is Patagonia at its very best and impressive. Trekking time 9.5 hours.

It's a long day ahead of you but it's one of the most beautiful trek have done so far. The final view point at the end is mind-blowing but the whole trek itself is really beautiful as well with numerous view point along the way so it worth to do even if you don't want to do the last bit. I raise my hat to Argentina for keeping this part of the park and all trails free of entry fees.

This hike is a must if you're in decent shape. This was our first long hike (the most we had done before was 3 hours). We read that it should take 10 hours while our hotel told us 7. We wound up hiking for 8 hours and spending 2 hours at the Laguna itself, and still didn't want to leave because it's so gorgeous. However, dark clouds rolled in--just as promised, the weather is unpredictable in El Chalten.

We're not in great or bad shape, probably just average. I'm glad we did the alternate route from El Pilar Hosteria (we took a taxi there) up to the base of Mt Fitzroy/Laguna de los Tres and down to El Chalten because I was exhausted before we started (from lack of sleep) and the first hour was much more gentle than the round-trip route from El Chalten. However, if we were well rested, I would've preferred the El Chalten roundtrip. It would afford beautiful views as you hiked towards the laguna. I'm sure we missed some of those views since we had to look backwards to catch them.

The view at the laguna is breaktaking. I love how there's a ridge and then you're rewarded with the stunning view of the lake and mountains. We never saw the peak of Mt Fitzroy--too many clouds, but it was still incredible since we had sun and caught could still see most of it together with clear views of the Torres. If it is absolutely rainy, I would say it wouldn't be worth the hike if you're not going to see any of the peaks.

This is a 25km trek, but worth every metre. Start early to enjoy the views. The 2.5km climb up to the lake can be a bit tiring, but the views are truly rewarding.
You don't need to carry too much water since there are streams to refill your bottle, but do carry enough food.
One of the best views at the summit, ever !!
