The Loma del Pliengue Tumbado is a chain of three round rocky summits at 1340m, 1420m and 1550m. In Spanish "Loma" could translate as "Hill". Pliegue Tumbado being the name of this chain of hills. On its Northern flank runs Rio Fitz Roy and its Southern one there is Rio Tunel. Carrying on further West, you would reach the impressive Cerro Solo, but that is alpine climbing, and no longer hiking. Loma del Pliegue Tumbado does not have anything spectacular and is far from being as marvelous as its neighbors, among others Cerro Torre and Cerro Fitz Roy. However it provides you with the best view on these mountains. It also gives a chance to see them from the South / South-East side, as the usual hike will take you to see from their East side. Hikers usually go to Laguna Torre or Laguna de los Tres to enjoy the view. This view point is even better!
