NotesA number of short walks make for a full day's walking around the myriad of waterfalls that make up probably the best set of waterfalls in the world. The upper tributaries follow a multitude of routes through pretty sub-tropical forests, ranging from quiet trickles to the massive Devil's Throat.

NotesMonte Fitzroy is simply one of the most spectacular mountains in the world. Day-walks and multi-day walks of 3-4 days take you to various vantage points, past lakes and glaciers. It's well worth an early start for a view of Monte Fitzroy at sunrise from the Laguna de los Tres lookout. Even a novice (like me) has a fair chance of spotting a torrent duck or magellanic woodpecker.

NotesOne of the best Andean multi-day walks on the Argentine side of the Andes, this walk explores jagged mountains, lakes and cool temperate valleys. Even in late Dec, heavy snow can slow progress over the two high passes on this route. With fresh snow however, the area around Laguna de los Témpanos is turned into a picturesquely icy frozen world. Public buses provide fairly regular access to both ends of this trail.
