Rise and shine! It's time for a big day of hiking. Today you will tackle the Laguna de los Tres- the highlight of El Chaltén.

The trail finishes at the ridge of the rocky De los Tres Glacier - an enormous formation in the shape of an arch that holds the beautiful blue water with the best view of the lagoon and De los Tres glacier.
