This is a 3-day expedition to Paso del Viento (Windy Pass), a beautiful destination near El Chalten. From here, you can have a stunning view of the Southern Patagonian Ice, in Argentina.
I strongly recommend this trip for those who always dreamed about contemplating the awesome spectacle of the Southern Patagonian Ice, but only have a few days or a limited budget to do so.
During this experience, we will discover large valleys, cross glaciers and ascend rocky parts in the heights.
The huge ice field is, without any doubts, one of the most breathtaking views of the Patagonia.
Are you planning to visit El Chalten soon? Please contact me and be a part of this amazing mountaineering trip.
If you have more time, you can also check this 10-day expedition right to the Southern Patagonia Ice Cap.

Paso del Viento
The climb towards Paso del Viento starts at Lake Toro and crossing a river (on foot or by a Tyrolean rope). This place is one of the main passes into the Ice-cap.
During this 2700 ft (900-meter) ascent, there is a one hour crossing on Ice, over Tunnel Glacier.
The trek continues above moraines and scree slopes and splendid views are seen all along the trek, at the top of the pass a fabulous panoramic lookout awaits everyone.
The return is following the same trail, back to Lake Toro Base Camp.

This type of trek requires regular sport or activity, previous walking experience over all types of terrain.
