We will sleep in tents.
If you need a hotel in El Chalten, I recommend Posada El Barranco. It's nice, simple and modern. Absolutely recommendable to rest before starting the expedition.
To get there, Calafate airport is the easiest to go get close to El Chalten. From there you can go by coach or renting a car to El Chalten.
You can rent most of the trekking equipment in El Chalten: crampons, ice axes, trekking sticks, backpacks, rigid shoes for crampons. You need a bag of around 50 L.
La Tapera is a very cosy restaurant where you can fill in your batteries. We can go before or after the expedition. Nice fire in the center of the main room. A mix between Switzerland and Buenos Aires, wood, good steak and pictures from Maradona.
