New Year's climb up Mount Moyano (1509m)January 1, 2018 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C
After sitting on the bus all day yesterday, we were both reared to get up and going and finally do some hiking again.
Our “target” today was Mount Moyano. There weren’t too many good options within walking distance from El Calafate, so we chose the highest mountain we could do in 1 day.
Mount Moyano was a 9hours, 25km hike with about 1500 meters uphill. We enjoyed the walk and the ability to just go out and away from any crowds. It was very much “auf eigene Faust” again :-)
Sadly, the panorama wasn’t the best (too many clouds) but we did see parts of tomorrow’s glacier (and the clouds kept away the wind alright). In addition to the great hike, we saw plenty of rabbits, birds and eagles, as well a a curious group of guanacos - also passed by an abandoned ski lift :-)Read more
