Hiking in El Chaltén is easy to do without a guide. All buses coming into town stop at the Visitor Centre, located at the entrance to the town. Here, park rangers explain the hiking routes, give out maps and make recommendations based on the weather forecast for the upcoming days. This makes it easy to plan your time. There are 5 main hiking routes and all can be done as day hikes, with ample accommodation in town catering to budget backpackers as well as those looking for more luxury. The more adventurous can pack in their tents and camp in the park itself, with a number of free campsites, all well marked on the map."http://www.daytours4u.com/en/argentina4u/5-popular-hiking-trails-in-el-chalten/
"The Andes or Andean Mountains are the longest continental mountain range in the world. They form a continuous highland along the western edge of South America. This range is about 7,000 km long, about 200 to 700 km wide (widest between18° south and 20° south latitude), and of an average height of about 4,000 m. The Andes extend from north to south through seven South American countries:Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia,Argentina and Chile."
Daniel from @dandyman_images took this shot and there's something I love about it. For one, I'm not really an animal shooter so I like looking at shots that I'm not good at taking.
I do love taking surf shots and I know how hard it is to get everything in camera and composition to work together at once. I think Daniel has done an awesome job here and I really love the minimalist colours.
