piedra del fraile

One of the first refuges in the area, a true classic.

Protected from the wind in the heart of the Electric River valley, this place has offered comfort to the world’s most experienced climbers and mountaineers, as well as to trekkers who arrive in the area for the first time.

Perfect for spending the night in a tent or inside the refuge, and getting stunned by the marvellous spots and views of the valley.


The path begins from the bridge of the Electric River, 16 km from the town by the RP N°41. You can get there with your own vehicle or regular transport that comes from El Chaltén. It can only be accessed on foot along a low-difficulty path that lasts approximately two hours.
