The province of Santa Cruz, very southerly Argentina, proposes the incredible Paso del Viento trek with its starting point in El Chaltén.
The Paso del Viento trek is a challenging hike that will lead us to a viewpoint from where we admire:
- The amazing Patagonian Ice Field
- Viedma Glacier
- Uspala Glacier
- Cord of Mariano Moreno as background
It will be an expedition of intermediate-moderate level that will last only 3 days. Although it is not necessary to have previous experience, you must count on well physical training because the trip includes intense walks.
If you love hiking combined with amazing views, Paso del Viento trek is perfect for you and your friends. If you want more details about the itinerary of 3 days, here I show you the complete program:
DAY 1: MEETING POINT
We will meet in El Chalten. We’ll have a group talk about next goals and sleep in an accommodation in the city (included in the price).
DAY 2: TORO CAMP
Once we have the technical gear checked, we start the hike towards the Toro Lake, where we will reach by midday. We’ll set up the camp and sleep in there (6 hours of total walk)
DAY 3: PASO DE VIENTO
We leave our base camp behind towards the Tunel River. Once in there, we can border it along or may cross it with the help of harnesses and cables. Then, we’ll keep ascending by moraines paths until we are finally in Paso del Viento viewpoint. After marveling our eyes with so incredible view, we’ll return to the base camp in Toro Lake (total walking time: 6-7 hours – Altitude change: 900-400 meters)
When we reach Toro camp we will go back to El Chaltén across an incredible route in Tunel River Valley. On the way we will enjoy many interesting views, such as Viedma Lake and the Masiff Fitz Roy.
