From this point begins the 20 km and 9 hours trek round trip in total to Laguna de los Tres always accompanied by a mountain guide. The first part of the trek is relatively easy until reaching the Poicenot Camp (6,3km), where the Blanco River will be crossed to, then, begin a more difficult and uneven trek towards Laguna de los Tres (2,5km).
After several hours of demanding trekking through the forest, where you can observe hanging glaciers and spectacular landscapes, you will reach the culminating point of the activity which is Laguna de los Tres.
