Mirador de Las Aguilas Half-Day Trek


This is an easy walk from the El Chalten Park Rangers welcome centre. It offers great views of Lake Viedma and the Bahia Tunel.

  • Start: El Chalten - Southern Sector of El Chalten, Park Rangers Visitor Centre.
  • End: Mirador de Las Aguilas


  • Grade of difficulty: Easy.
  • Trek Time: 3hrs, return.
  • Distance: 5.4km, return.
  • Season: All Year.


The start is along the same trail that goes to the Mirador de los Condores. However, ten minutes before getting to the turn off to the Condores trail, you must take the trail to Mirador de los Aguilas, which will be sign-posted.

Starting from the park ranger station, located in the southern sector of the village, you will walk a few meters and pass a small gate. A sign will indicate the way to go, and from here it will be another 45 minutes until you reach the Las Aguilas viewpoint. The trail is well signposted and on its way, there are several information boards that explain features of the landscape around you.

After you take the trail to Mirador Las Aguilas, the path endures a gentle altitude gain which, as it progresses, reveals the great Viedma lake on the horizon.

Once at the viewpoint, you will get an excellent view of Lago Viedma, Cerro Piramide, Bahia Tunel, and typical Patagonian landscape scenery.
