It was a beautiful place to watch the sunset. Hope for a clear day so you can see the peaks of the mountain ranges!

Great hike. We unfortunately did not have clear weather and did not get to see Fitz Roy. The hike was still worth it! The last mile or so is quite a challenge as it is steep with lots of rocks and uneven steps.

Hike up to Mirador del Torre, a viewpoint offering priceless vistas of some of the most famous and prominent peaks in the range. A favorite route among those with limited time to explore the area, this trail does present a challenge for inexperienced hikers, but...More
