As an older couple with handicaps, a lot of trails were not suitable for our capabilities. This level, easy walk to a nice waterfall was very pleasant.

A short visit that made for great photographs. Could have brought a picnic. You can walk from town or park nearby for shorter walk.

The beginning of this short trail is easily reached by car along the dirt road 23 from the Fitz Roy trailhead - otherwise it is a 3 km walk. A nice waterfall to sit and ponder for a while.

We walked there on our last day in patagonia. We did not expect much but we were surprised. I would suggest to take it easy with this walk and find a river part to jump in and swim!!

A good place where to spend half a day. Phisical demand is low, the walk is lessthan 2 km from thevillage and it'snice to stay there eating asandwich with the view of the waterfall. It's nothing breath taking but it'sworth going there all considered.

When my wife and I took this hike, we didn't know we could actually drive very close to the waterfall (oops!). We took a longer hike, but it was a nice, easy hike going through some wooded areas that were shaded, etc. We actually saw...More

We did the short hike to the waterfall upon arriving in El Chalten. The trail wasn't busy and the view at the falls was very nice. It's a nice way to get you ready for the bigger hikes.
