Heading southwest from El Chaltén's Park Ranger Office, this trail (10km and four to five hours one way) skirts the eastern face of Loma del Pliegue Tumbado going toward Río Túnel, then cuts west and heads to Laguna Toro. It's less crowded than the main routes. The hike is gentle, but prepare for strong winds and carry extra water.

It’s the only hike that allows views of both Cerros Torre and Fitz Roy at once.
