Description

Discover the wonderful views and hiking routes in the Argentine Patagonia on this spectacular one-day adventure to Loma del Pliegue Tumbando. Located in Los Glaciares National Park, Santa Cruz, this incredible path is challenging and exciting. Join me!

The Loma del Pliegue Tumbando hike is the most challenging of the classic hikes in Patagonia. However, the views of the mountain chains and its glaciers make the hard work totally worth it. On this trip, we’ll meet at El Chaltén and hike south, slowly going into the Andean Patagonian forest. Finally, we’ll cover the last 300 meters on an ascent to the best sightseeing points.

This is a moderately difficult hike covering 10 kilometers in 8 hours, with an elevation gain of 900 meters. Therefore, I recommend this trip to physically fit participants that are not overweight. I do not suggest this trip to pregnant women or people with heart surgery. Also, make sure to read the required equipment for this trip below.

So, are you ready for an unforgettable adventure? Then book your trip now and let me take care of all the details!

About the guide

guide profile img

Mountaineering is part of my life since I was a child. I'm from Ushuaia and now I'm leaving in El Chalten, two of the most beautiful places in Patagonia for hiking, skiing, climbing and feeling the strong and pristine Patagonian nature.

I started guiding in 2014 and it has turned a way of leaving. I have worked in many areas of the Andes Range, from the low and sharp mountains in Ushuaia until the high mountain in the Real Range (Bolivia), and many trekking and mountains in North Patagonia Area (Bariloche) and Central Andes (Mendoza). Now in El Chalten I guide many beautiful trekking in the area. I guide the treks in Los Glaciares National Park under license of Zeta Trek.

I'm also an experimented climber and a certificated climbing monitor FASA (Argentinian Federation of Skiing and Andinism).
And I'm studying Waldorf Pedagogy oriented to physical activity.

Please get in touch with me if you wish to be guided in South Patagonia this summer! or to organize a beautiful adventure in the Andes whenever you feel it's the moment to experiment something new.
