El Chaltén - Piedra Negra
We leave El Chaltén on our vehicle that takes us 20km away to the bridge over the Electrico River. We start trekking through a forest along a very easy path until arriving at the Piedra del Fraile refuge. From here the steep trek begins till we reach our campsite at Piedra Negra. We will get superb views to the lower valleys and looking to the east the big granite walls from the Guillaumet to the Mermoz and Fitz roy peaks. A superb scenery 360º around.
