Beschreibung Mirador Pliegue Tumbado - Parque Nacional Los Glaciares - El Chalten - Argentina

Hiking up to the Mirador Pliegue Tumbador is worth every single meter. The view along the way and last but not least from the top is absolutely astonishing. This is what people come here for! Said that, how many have been up there and did not see anthing!

The trail is well marked until you are above the tree line. The little map you get for free at the APN Information is perfect. The map Patagonian South Icefield from 2004 you get at the store is wrong. Seems even the GPS points are wrong too. The trail is much higher up along the trail that leeds to the Laguna Toro. It takes about 2 hours to get to the junction. Also see the panorama below. The mirador is the hilly mountain with a bit snow to the left.

There are hundreds of horse flies along the way. Maybe insect repellent helps. The trail could get muddy too. If you get into clouds above the tree line it might get a bit tricky to find your way. There are a few stone men but sometimes no obvious trail.
