Chorillo del Salto, El Chalten

4.3
Half hidden by green woods traversed by many hiking trails, Chorillo del Salto drops from a height of 20 m (66 ft). During cold winters, the waterfall freezes and becomes a location for practicing ice climbing. On warm sunny days, the big flat rocks and picnic grounds surrounding the waterfall offer opportunities for leisure and picnicking. Bring fresh water, a waterproof coat, and a camera.

  • This waterfall is very close to El Chalten (3.5 km) and can be accessed in 3 ways:-Trail from El Chalten (3.5 km) very quiet to do; -part of the car path, stopping at Access 2 of the track and continuing on foot (1.5 km) by the main trail; -All the way by car parking at the main entrance of the waterfall (which I put in the photo here of the evaluation). The 3 modes lead us to the main entrance in which there is parking, toilets (only "houses") in the woods and a small walk of 500m to the waterfall. The waterfall is very beautiful and with this easy access becomes mandatory stop. Many do so in the return of Lago Del Desierto or the Huemul Glacier (both paths pass through the entrance of the waterfall), while others, like us, enjoy it at the end of the day, when there is no longer time for a long stroll. It's really worth it.

  • Very simple and very cool route to do in winter as it is almost all the waterfall frozen and worth it.
