Entrance to the path along the glacier to the viewpoints Alta Platforma and Baja Platforma. 6 kms, 4hrs. Rugged trail with lots of roots, rocks, and wooden stairways. View of the 27km long glacier is spectacular.
Entry is controlled by a gate, you cannot enter before 8:30 or after 13:00. Pay entry just down the road at visitor center (foreigner price 11,000 in Jan '24)
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Really great hike and spectacular views, well worth the entry fee for us. Mixed clouds that cleared out over the course of the day. The hike is pretty rugged, lots of up/down, roots, boulders, and wooden stairs. We probably spent about 2 hours actually hiking, but did spend 4 hours on the trail taking in the views and wildlife. Saw many condors, magellanic woodpeckers, and lots of other birds in addition to the glacier we came to see. Highly recommended!Report Check-In
Indeed you have to pay to the conaf office 9000 CLP pp and it’s still open between 8:30 to 13:00
It’s a 4h hike, and the path is not that easy. But the view is spectacular ! We had good weather and it’s one of the best view on a glaciar we have done. If you don’t believe me watch the picture ;)
Would love to see how people got in for free…. It’s currently 9,000pp for foreigners, and seems locked after hoursReport Check-In
Currently closed due to CONAF strike. A ranger stopped us as we were walking toward the entrance gate and was not friendly.Report Check-In
