We leave the hotel in El Calafate following to the east side of the city, starting our route through Cerro Frias.

We continue until we see La boca del Diablo, point where the lake narrows and follows until finding the Upsala glacier. We also see the Peninsula Avellaneda.
Arriving at the summit, at 1,030m altitude we enjoy the wonderful view of FitzRoy, located in El Chalten, as well as Torres del Paine, located in Chile. A truly breathtaking sight!
With this wide view of the region that we have from the various viewpoints that exist on the way, the guide takes the opportunity to give us an introduction about the local geography, being possible to visualize the limits of the National Park and to see historical points of the region.
Besides the photogenic landscape, we can see several common animals in Patagonia such as guanacos, foxes, condors and hares.
It is worth bearing in mind that the path is surrounded by the Patagonian steppe. A unique and very typical landscape of the region.
