We leave early in the morning to the starting point of the trek located 20 kms away from town in our private vehicle to Hosteria El Pilar. Once arrived, we start to walk on the trail to Poincenot camp thru a forest of “Lengas”, typical Patagonic tree, having the Blanco River on our right. Here, we may leave our gear before continuing through Lenga (Southern Beech) forest and ascend to the Laguna de los Tres. At this lagoon we enjoy the closest, and best, views of the massif before returning to camp.
