    Looking for the glacier

    by andal13 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I decided to make an activity called "minitrekking"; this activity begins inside the National Park, when you embark at the pier "Puerto Bajo de la Sombra"; after crossing the Brazo Rico (a part of lake Argentino), you reach a shelter where you leave your picnic box and you meet the mountain guides, who will lead you to the glacier. Then, you begin a trekking path through the forest, looking for the glacier.

    Decidí realizar una actividad llamada "minitrekking"; esta actividad comienza denro del Parque Nacional, cuando se embarca en el embarcadero en el "Puerto Bajo de la Sombra"; luego de cruzar el Brazo Rico (parte del lago Argentino), se llega a un refugio en donde cada uno deja su vianda y se encuentra con los guías de montaña, que los guiarán hacia el glaciar. Entonces, comienza un sendero de trekking a través del bosque, en busca del glaciar.

    Every story comes to an end... What can be better than drinking a good whisky with thousands years ice? Cheers!

    Toda historia llega a su fin... ¿Qué puede ser mejor que beber un buen whisky con hielo de miles de años? ¡Salud!

    A toast!

    The reward!

    As we have been good children, and everyone behaved properly, the mountain guides rewarded us with bonbons and whisky; the whisky was not "on the rocks"... it was "on the glacier"!

    Como hemos sido niños buenos, y todo el mundo se comportó correctamente, los guías de montañas nos recompensaron con bombones y whisky; el whisky no fue "en las rocas", sino "en el glaciar"!

    Well, well, well...

    Easier, indeed!

    Once you reach the top of the glacier, you have to come down... which is easier! Despite you keep on walking with the clamps, with your legs open and stepping on firmly, the effort is much lesser.

    Un vez que alcancen la cima del glaciar, deberán volver... lo cual es más fácil! A pesar que siguen caminando con los grampones, con las piernas abiertas y pisando fuerte, el esfuerzo es mucho menor.

    When you arrive at the edge of the glacier, the mountain guides will put you some metal clamps on your shoes; these clamps are necessary to trek on the ice. Before the trekking begins, they teach you how to walk with those "stilettos".

    Cuando llegan al borde del glaciar, los guías de montaña les pondrán grampones metálicos en los zapatos; estos grampones son necesarios para caminar sobre el hielo. Antes de iniciar la caminata, ellos enseñan cómo caminar con esos "tacos aguja".

    After one half an hour or so trek, we arrived to the edge of the glacier; until now, everything was easy... What will happen from now on?

    Luego de una caminata de aproximadamente media hora, llegamos al borde del glaciar; hasta ahora, todo fue fácil... ¿Qué ocurrirá de ahora en adelante?
