Starting from El Chaltén, you cross the access bridge over the Fitz Roy river and continue to the head of the path that starts at the National Park Visitor Center. Passing a small gate, a sign will show you the way to the left, and a few steps away another information sign will show you a sketch of the path. From here it will be another half hour to reach the Los Cóndores viewpoint. This path is relatively new, since it was enabled in 2004. It is very well signposted and on its way it has several informative signs that you will also take advantage of to appreciate the landscape around you.
As its name implies, the viewpoint is located at a strategic point for eventual observation of condors on their frequent gliding path to and from the Fitz Roy River valley. It is also an excellent alternative to appreciate the imposing granite peaks and glaciers that dominate the horizon.
Watching the sunset from this viewpoint can be a great farewell to your stay in El Chaltén.
The trail to the Las Águilas viewpoint begins at the fork marked about ten minutes before reaching the Los Cóndores viewpoint. The viewpoint is a natural balcony with a panoramic view over the steppe and Lake Viedma to the south, Cerro Huemul to the west and Cerro Pirámide to the east. to get started This hike is ideal to prepare for an older one.
