After about 1-hour of hiking in ascent crossing small streams and some ñires and lengas woods, we arrive at an exposed area with a picture postcard view of Mount Fitz Roy, Torre and Huemul.
We continue the hike across the Pampas, locally called “Pampa de las Carretas” and then into the woods. Then, we will pass across an alpine terrain, where you may see delicate flowers. In this section it is quite possible to find the remains of MARINE FOSSILS such as ammonites and belemnites which are about 100 million years old.

In this last section we may also experience the Patagonian wind or snow, even in the summer! You will finally arrive at our target – nearly 1500 masl. This spot offers an unconventional and unique view of Torre and Fitz Roy massifs. Once there, relax! Take some time off to have rest and lunch.
