This trekking circuit is considered the main one in the area, being one of the most attractive and shocking because it leads us to the base of Mount Fitz Roy. Between 07:30 and 09:00 (Schedule to be reviewed and informed the previous day); our guide with the driver picks the passengers to take us to the starting point of the trail, which is located at 18 kms from El Chalten (estimated time of 30/40 minutes in bus). As soon as we leave the town, from inside the vehicle we will begin to amaze of the Andean landscape, with the astonishing valley of Rio de las Vueltas on the right side, and in parts of the road the walls of Fitz Roy are already on sight. When arriving through, the route to Rio Blanco (White River), where the activity begins, we introduce ourselves into a forest populated with Lengas (beech trees) and Ñires, with soft.
unevenness, and only after one hour of walking, we arrive to the first lookout point, which surprises us with a privileged view to Glaciar de Piedras Blancas (White Stone Glacier). After this stop and having taken photographs, about 45 more minutes lead to the Poincenot camping area, where surely tents of trekkers of all nationalities can be found. Then, very close, the river is crossed through a hanging bridge, with the intention of arriving to the “Rio Blanco” base camp, which is solely used by climbers. Here, there is also a shelter made of logs constructed by the National Park Rangers, with the intention of aiding travelers under rough weather. From this point, those with more energy, the guide will lead them to the Laguna de Los Tres lookout point, which, starting from Rio Blanco is 500 meters of unevenness in 1 hour trekking. From said lookout point we can enjoy a privileged view of the Fitz Roy massif, the lagoon, and their glaciers. On a short distance, a stunning view of Laguna Sucia (Dirty Lagoon) can also be appreciated. After enjoying lunch there, we head back to El Chalten through the Laguna Capri lookout point trail section. Approximately between 17:00 and 18:00, we should be back in town or the hotel.
