Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Santa Cruz / El Chalten / Chorillo del Salto
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.

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.
Ruta muy sencilla y muy chula para hacer en invierno ya que está casi toda la cascada congelada y merece la pena. more »Very simple and very cool route to do in winter as it is almost all the waterfall frozen and worth it.
Easy to access and great place to go and have lunch
Beautiful falls and the landscape of the trial is very good with flowing river and distant snow capped mountains.
