This extension of the hike to Capri Lagoon, Poincenot Camping, and the Blanco River, is especially recommended on clear days when the spectacular views at the top make the extra climbing truly worthwhile. Starting from the climber only campsite at the Blanco River, begin hiking uphill for approximately 2½ Km, until reaching the old frontal moraine of the De los Tres Glacier. Here you’ll encounter a panoramic view of the De los Tres Lagoon. Continue down to the natural drainage point of the De los Tres Glacier, where you will reach your true reward. On this terrace, above the Sucia Lagoon you’ll find views of the glacier spilling down and the Poincenot and Saint-Exupery Needles. This extension hike will take roughly 2 extra hours, so, if you are planning on doing the entire distance from El Chaltén in one day, plan on leaving early, and allow plenty of time.
