Chorrillo del salto (Chorrillo del Salto Waterfall)
This is an easy walk through a lengas and ñires forest, which takes you to a waterfall with a 20-metre drop that freezes completely in winter
The waterfall with an approximate drop of 20 metres, hidden by a forest, is located 3km outside of El Chaltén. The waterfall can be reached either by walking or by car, along the road that goes to Desierto Lake. Not far along the road we take a path on the left hand side that takes us to the waterfall. The stream here is in its last leg of its journey before it flows into the Vueltas River. This trekking is ideal for people with little time to spare.
In the winter months the waterfall freezes over and ice climbing lovers make the most of its easy accessibility and climb it.
On fine weather days the location turns into a mini paradise for relaxing in the afternoon with friends, drinking mate or reading a book.
