The hike to Laguna Castillo should have been a major highlight on the second half of the Carretera Austral for me. Unfortunately, after ascending two hours, some snowfields popped up. One was too steep and slippery to pass without proper gear, so descending was the only option. Even though I didn’t make it to the top, the hike was one of the best I had on my trip so far.
