Step by step details

We will drive early in the morning from El Chaltén to Lago Del Desierto, located at 38 km (24 miles) distance. From the parking lot we´ll approach to the base of the Huemul glacier ( about 1 h) and we´ll continue the ascent using the skis towards the summit (2146 meters or 7040 feet). It will take us about 6 to 7 hours to get to the summit. The views are worth it from the top! After a break, and depending on the snow conditions, we’ll have a few options for the ski descent. It will take us another two hours to get back to the car. We will drive back to El Chaltén in the afternoon.
