This is several hours north of El Calafante. The trail is out of the town El Chalten in Argentina.

Camped at Poincenat and got up at 4am to hike the 1 hour summit trail at sunrise and it was amazing. It’s a tough hike even without a pack but the views are inspiring all the way up.

Absolutely stunning! Combined with the most incredible fall foliage (end of March), this was the best day hike I've ever done. If you're near El Calafate, take the 3 hour trip north. You won't regret it.

Amazing.

Absolutely stunning. For beginners (me) and acrophobic hikers (me), and depending on weather, this is not a completely moderate hike. It's much more difficult, slippery and dangerous in snow, rain, and high winds, which are the conditions we completed it in. The very last stretch during the final 2 kilometer climb is at a 45° angle, and was covered in maybe 1/2 a foot of fresh snow, then it closes with a steep hill of slippery rocks before finally seeing the lagoon. It is such a relief to see the lagoon. Ha. One of the most beautiful sights I'd ever seen.

Awesome hike. Beautiful the entire way. A mile almost straight up to the lakes but worth all the effort

Amazing hike. Definitely worth the 4 am wake up to get up in time for sunrise.

The best hike we have experienced. You will work hard in the last mile but the payoff is huge. Don't forget sunscreen!
