Location: El Chalten, Argentina

MapNeighbour to El Calafate is El Chalten, an amazing National Park containing the most difficult climbs in the world. Mt Fitzroy, Cerro Torre and some amazing hiking through beautiful terrain. And all this from the luxury of your hostel! Yep! Stay in the tiny village of El Chalten and all the park hiking is accessible on day walks. Very comfortable indeed. I think we were due for a break from camping in below freezing conditions. And, I was coming down with the flu to boot. It really nailed me after our ice climbing at the end of our stay. I guess there is some sense in Mum's advice to actually rest when you're sick.
