Mt. Fitz Roy – Day Two
Mt. Fitz Roy - Day Two

C.B. Poincenot is one of those conveniently located trekking camps that accommodates early morning hikes to strategically located vistas (all without the nuisance of carrying along your gear).  Lago Los Tres is about 40 steep minutes from C.B Poincenot and certainly worth the time.  It’s also where I left my nice pair of wool gloves.

Mt. Fitz Roy – Day One
Mt. Fitz Roy - Day One

Argentina is crammed full of cool little towns, especially near the mountains.  El Chalten is one such location.  Cool and rustic with an edge of unfulfilled promises, El Chalten was developed from the ground up (a planner’s dream case-study, by the way) in 1985 as a deterrent toward Chile with a side consideration as a […]

The Sierra Valdiviseo Circuit–Tierra del Fuego, Argentina – Part 3

Day three begins with an ascent toward Laguna Azul from the previous nights camp at the base of the waterfall (this river probably has a name, but I can’t remember it…a side loss from waiting several months to write a blog post).  Fire damage continues to be quite extensive during this ascent, making the path […]

The Sierra Valdiviseo Circuit–Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina (Part One)

When I was planning my journey to Argentina I opted out of purchasing the full country Lonely Planet.  Full-country LP’s are generally very weak in the trekking & wilderness department as they are keen on one purchasing their trekking guides (they have also moved that direction with urban travelling as well, gently reminding readers that […]

Triund – India – August 2009

Triund is seasonal pasture land located about 1000m above Mcleod Ganj and is where I spent six days just wandering around the surrounding hills, meadows and valleys, eating Maggie and drinking too much instant coffee. Initially, I was planning to trek Indrahar Pass but decided that I would rather spend my last few days in […]
