HikingGreat!

Solo hiked this in 2016, great trail and easy to follow - never secluded. Rocky at the top but one of my favorite hikes. Highly recommend

One of my all time favorite hikes I’ve ever completed. Stunning landscapes. You can jump into the water at the end but it will be freezing, bring a change of clothes if you do this!

It was a life dream to hike thru Patagonia and this trail was absolutely breathtaking. The lake up top is unreal and makes the trek worthwhile.

HikingGreat!Scramble

Hike Feb 2020. Even though I was hiking solo I never went more than 20 mins before I saw other hikers. One of my favorite hikes I’ve ever done. The change in scenery was beautiful and views are breathtaking. Headed out to trail at 7am which saved me from the bottlenecks that can happen in the boulder/rock portion. Made it back to camp by 5pm even with plenty of breaks throughout the hike to take pictures, enjoy the scenery and have lunch. Weather was sunny and clear one moment and rainy the next. Thankful for my rain poncho. I was happy to have hiking poles with me during rock section as my 53 year old knees appreciated the extra support.

Did this hike in June 2019. Hiking in the winter led to us seeing only one other hiker on the route. Stunning views until we hit a snowstorm near the end and couldnt see the end. Beautiful views on the way back. Very long trail but wasnt too difficult for two novice hikers while taking the last 1 km slowly

Did the trail in december. Best hike I've ever done. Give plenty of time for the hike because the towers can be obscured by fog. We waited ~30 minutes for the fog to clear up. Definitely go.

The views are amazing, the trail is in perfect condition and even though it says hard only the last hour of the hike justifies this label. Still very doable. We did it on a sunny Sunday after a period of bad weather which resulted into this being the most crowded hike ever (queuing to go down etc..), hence the 4 and not 5 stars.

Did this trail with a tour group, it’s pretty tough. Trekking poles, water, and lunch are recommended. You can stop in Chileno about half way. Took us about 8 hours going a moderate pace. Worth every step, was a great trek.

A 5-Star hike but the crowd costs it a star. We got a late start...around 9 am and I highly agree with the suggestions of others to start as early as possible. If this is your first hike in the park, be aware that you'll have 30 minutes to an hour+ still to go once you enter the park, depending on your location. If possible, stay in the park the night before to ensure an early arrival at the trail head. We had good weather and could have hiked in shorts if we had them. :-) However, be sure to bring a shell if you plan to spend any time at the towers...and you should. My total hiking time was 7:43. That was less dependent on my conditioning and more a factor of the volume of people at the various bottlenecks along the upper part. At times, you'll have to wait your turn to get through a narrow point, both going up an down. This is an iconic hike that should be on everyone's bucket list. Just know that it's not for those who like to hike in solitude...you'll have plenty of friends along with way.

A brilliant and rewarding hike. aim to arrive and start as early as possible as it gets busy with the bus tours. The reviews that break this hike down into 3 parts are totally right. A bit of a pull up the first climb, a woodland undulating walk, then a hard pull up the boulders. fresh water is available from the refugio about a third of the way up (start of the woodland section) with toilets, showers and even food and drink available. park fees need to be paid on arrival. The welcome centre at the start of the trail is very modern with food and drink.

Awesome hike. Make sure you bring some extra layers. A rain shell saved our lives when it suddenly started blowing crazy wind and rain. Do the detour to Mirador Fitz Roy (the loop near Laguna Capri) and climb up the little hill next to the sign with the mountain names. Gives you a great view. For water you can refill in the streams, too. One water container is likely all you need. Maybe have 2 just incase. Once at the top (and you’ve stopped huffing and puffing), go down to the laguna and stick to the trail on the south side of it. You’ll hit a sign that warns you about lack of trails, make a left and go to the edge to see another glacial lake.

HikingGreat!Rocky

My husband and I completed this hike in February 2020 and it was the most incredible hike we have ever been on. There are stunning views throughout the entire trail. It is well marked and easy to follow. We had been warned about the rocky ascent the final mile or so, but we were not fully prepared. It took us a little over an hour to make it up the final mile but it was so worth it. We felt like we were on top of the world and could do anything. We were glad to have good hiking shoes and hiking poles to make it back down the steep rocky path safely. My only wish is that I hadn't booked our bus back to El Calafate that same evening. It would have been nice to have time to really sit and enjoy the view at the top for a while and not have to rush back down.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Was lucky to have great weather with frequent clear skies over the course of the day. Would highly recommend using trekking poles coming down. A lot of the rocks had ice on them which made going down right after sunrise really dangerous.

Hiking

As others have said the trail can be broken into three parts. A moderate grade through a rocky wash, then a flatter section through a forest that goes by Refugio Chileno, and then the steep ascent up a rocky stream and rock field. We had perfect weather and the views were amazing. There is plenty of stream access for water or you can refill and use bathrooms at the refugio. They also have a full restaurant. One last note, the trail is closer to 22 km as the parking lot is now 2 km from the trail head.

Easy until the last mile, then hard but not killer. When you get to the top you want to them go to the easy peak to the west, great but different views. Go early. Best to van out to Hotel Pilar to ascend and then return by this route into town.

Hiking

This was one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. The first part is very steep uphill. It then becomes more flat but still many uphills. The last part is at a very steep upward incline in very rocky and wet conditions. Trekking poles are advised if you are carrying a heavy pack. The view is so worth the hike. About halfway up there is a shelter with bathrooms for a small cost, water and even a lunch place with drinks. This is a very heavily trafficked hike so expect crowds in high season. We were able to do this as a day trip from puerto Natales using Bus Sur and the shuttle from hotel Torres. Email the hotel for the shuttle schedule. We did the hike in about 7 hours. Great visitors center at the trailhead with water, drinks and snacks.

This is a great moderate trail to do in El Chalten. Many reviews say it is challenging, but ultimately depends on your experience. We trail run in the Canadian Rockies on more challenging terrain so would not consider this hard. The biggest challenge was the fact that it was quite busy, full of people with limited gear and experience. The park staff say it takes 8 hours but we did it in about 4.5 hours in the peak time of the afternoon.
