Mount Tronador (3554m) is located south of the Andes Mountains, near the city of Bariloche (Argentina) very close to the border with Chile. The name ‘Tronador’ (thunder, in English) is due to the thunder-like noise as a result of frequent glacial landslides. It has three peaks, the Argentine peak to the east, the Chilean peak to the west and a border summit, called the International peak. The mountain is covered by seven glaciers and there is an area at its base where ice is dyed black by sediments.

FAQs: Hiking in Mount Tronador

Why should I choose Mount Tronador for my Hiking adventure?

Argentine side

On the Argentine side, a trail allows us to get close to the foot of the rock walls that surround the mount, to the point of losing sight of the summit due to its excessive proximity to it. The best views of Mount Tronador are obtained in the nearby area of Pampa Linda.

Mountain hut

A pedestrian path with a steep slope, leads to the Otto Meiling refuge, owned by the Bariloche Andean Club. It has good accommodation facilities, and is located on the edge of the upper glaciers of Alerce and Castaño Overo.

Ventisquero negro

It is one of the seven glaciers that emerge from Mount Tronador. It receives that name because it contains sediments that dye it black, unlike the immaculate white of the other glaciers. It is fed by another glacier located 700 meters higher, on top of the mountain.
