Patagonia's Laguna Torre vs Laguna delos Tres Day-Hike Comparison

two of the best and most popular Argentine Patagonia's day-hike
Started the fun-hiking from my home country to moving beyond the neighbors in South-east Asia (Kinabalu) and North (Fuji), all the-way to Central Asia (Himalayas) and Africa (Kilimanjaro). Dream-hike is unstoppable all the way in South America's famous, the Patagonia trails. Patagonia hike is a challenge for a long hike rather than its summit elevation.

Laguna Torre is located in the Los Glaciares National Park, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. It is formed from glacial melt water and is a popular site for hikers and climbers to see surroundings peaks, including the east face of Cerro Torre. The glacial lake is sited 10 km west of the El Chaltén tourist village, where it can be easily accessed by hikers between the months October to April. Laguna delos Tres is the most desired and exciting trek that takes you to the foot of Mount Chaltén. This natural viewpoint is the closest site to the mythical walls of the Mount Fitz Roy and its surrounding granite peaks and without a doubt the most famous of all treks.
