“Visit to El Chalten, the trekking capital of Argentina – a curtain raiser” by K.J.S.Chatrath

 I went to Argentina and Chile, alone from India at the age of 65.  Of the places visited by me, El Chalten was really awesome and peaceful.  It is a small mountain village in  the Santa Cruz province of Argentina. It is called the national trekking capital of Argentina. I would be sharing details of my visit with photographs in 3 articles that will follow.

This is just a curtain raiser…   …
