Route 40: From Gobernadores Gregores to El Calafate
Route 40 continues southward, passing Tres Lagos (Three Lakes), 200 km from Gregores. A little after Tres Lagos we meet up with Provincial Route 23 which can take us to¬†El Chalt√©n, National Capital of Trekking. This route borders Lake Viedma up until the side of¬†Monte Fitz Roy¬†and Cerro Torre.
This is a really beautiful area, still virgin and wild. It is worth it to take a detour to see it, and also you can go on a short trek. Later the route continues onto the spectacular¬†El Calafate and the Glaciers National Park.
From Gobernador Gregores it is 360km of gravel road to El Calafate, without taking into account the detour to El Chalt√©n.
