Departure from the hotel heading the Tierra Mayor Valley, in this great snowy valley we begin the crossing in sleds drawn by Huskies,
After crossing the valley we enter the forest by an old path of woodcutters, in the middle of this centennial forest of Lengas we arrive at the refuge of
the Hachero (Small log cabin heated by firewood). We say goodbye to the Huskies and our guide helps us to put on our rackets
(Without which we could not walk because of the thickness of the snow that normally reaches the meter), the objective: The Icefall of the Alvear
And the viewpoint of the Valley, the return to the refuge is faster and fun since it is downhill and culminates in the Hachero refuge, in the refuge
We recover energies with a hot chocolate. From the shelter of the hachero we return to Tierra Mayor valley walking with snowshoes.
