    Bring money

    by puss Written Apr 9, 2007

    Miscellaneous: All the guidebooks warn you, there are signs in El Calafate that warn you..and yet some people still show up in El Chalten without enough cash. NO bank and NO ATM in town. Some tourist companies accept VISA but just stock up on the cash before you get there.

    Good coat

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Despite I was there in summer, the weather is cold; above the glacier, you feel the chill wind. You need a good rainproof coat, cap, scarf and gloves (if you did not take gloves, they give you a pair). Sport trousers, cotton or wool socks, and sunglasses.

    A pesar de que estuve allí en el verano, el tiempo es frío; sobre el glaciar, se siente el viento helado. Necesitarán un abrigo impermeable, gorro, bufanda y guantes (si no llevan guantes, allí les darán un par). Pantalones deportivos, medias de algodón o de lana y lentes de sol.

    Made of gold?

    Photo Equipment: Your camera and a lot of films are a must here! The views are amazing, so do not forget to take enough films (if you are not in the digital era). The ice and the sun are dazzling, so a 100 ASA film is enough; take care for the exposure setting.

    La cámara y un montón de rollos son imprescindibles aquí. Las vistas son impresionantes, así que no olviden traer suficientes rollos de fotos (si no están en la era digital). El hielo y el sol son deslumbrantes, por lo que una película de 100 ASA es suficiente; cuiden los tiempos de exposición.

    Dangerous sun

    Sunblock

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Do not forget the sunblock! On a sunny day, the sun can make you look like a tomatoe (remeber you are at the most dangerous place on Earth because of the ozone hole, and besides, the ice reflects the sun). A good sunblock is necessary.

    No olviden el protector solar! En un día soleado, el sol puede hacerlos lucir como un tomate (recuerden que están en la zona más riesgosa del planeta debido al agujero de ozono, y además, el hielo refleja el sol). Un buen protector solar es imprescindible.

    Very elegant, indeed!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are going to trek on the glacier, you will be walking on ice, so you will need to keep your feet warm and dry. You have to take sporty boots or shoes, and cotton or wool socks. Leave your stilettos at home.

    Si van a caminar sobre el glaciar, estarán caminando sobre el hielo, por lo que necesitarán mantener sus pies abrigados y secos. Necesitarán botas o zapatos deportivos, y medias de algodón o de lana. Dejen los tacos aguja en casa.
