Paradise on Earth!
Favorite thing: There are three high-points of the PN in my view:
1) Lago de los tres - including interesting, steep, access path - views of Fitz Roy or laguna Sucia belong to the best you can ever see
2) Laguna Torre with Cerro Torre in the back - unforgettable experience, especially in the early morning sun!
3) "path" to Laguna Piedras Blancas - only few hundred meters from the main route but surely the most difficult (and dangerous, when jumping over the stream) trail in this PN
Fondest memory: Many people stay overnight in El Chaltén, it is true that you can reach every single interesting place in this park within one-day trip, but I strongly recommend to take a tent and stay in nice camping-places. This way you save lots of time and it gives you the opportunity to enjoy the superb early-morning views, which are really unique. I stayed in Campamento Poincenot and the second night in De Agostini - both camps are clean and nicely sheltered.

Take a deep breath...
Fondest memory: After trekking on the glacier, the intrepid (and tired!) trekkers had time for lunch and a rest, before our ship came back... Most of us climbed a cliff to take a breath... in front of a breathtaking landscape!
Luego del trekking sobre el glaciar, los intrépidos (y cansados!) caminantes tovimos tiempo para almorzar y descansar, antes que el barco volviera a buscarnos... La mayoría de nosotros subimos a un risco para tomar un respiro... frente a un paisaje que deja sin aliento!
Love at first sight
Fondest memory: I was planning this trip for years... Finally my dream came true... I met the mythical Perito Moreno Glacier! The first sight of that wonderful blue ice mass from the wandering road is unforgettable.
Estuve planificando este viaje durante años... Finalmente, mi sueño se hizo realidad... Me encontré con el mítico Glaciar Perito Moreno! La primera vista de aquella maravillosa masa de hielo azul desde la serpenteante ruta es inolvidable.
