Mt Fitz Roy & El Chalten
Hiking from El Chalten village
Sunday 18 February 2018
Named after the captain of HMS Beagle, Cerro Fitz Roy (3,405m) towers high above the small mountain settlement of El Chaltèn to the south. This village, formed in 1985 to consolidate Argentina's border claim with Chile, now functions as a base for backpackers and hikers looking to explore the multiple trails in the region.
