We'll continue through the valley for another hour and a half before ascending a huge terminal moraine to a lookout (900 M), excellent for picture taking. At this point we will be surrounded by three giant granite towers (2850 M) and a lagoon with slurry waters due to erosion produced by glaciers.

The camp has access to modern facilities and hot showers. Unless noted, meals will be taken in the Refugios where camping accommodations are added. There is no extra cost associated with this and all equipment necessary will be provided by us, including porters to carry the camping gear. According to our experience, usually the space at the Refugios open up when we get close to the departure dates, and we have access to book the night we need. You will be notified upon booking when camping accommodations replace a Refugio night. )
