Requirements for travelers hiking in El Chaltén

In order to smooth the briefing process, before their arrival please:

  1. Provide the Kallpa Staff with the passengers’ Gmail address, or we will create one for them to use.
  2. Make sure that the travelers’ smartphone has enough capacity (at least 50 MB).
  3. Make sure that the travelers have installed properly the Google Maps app, and that it works fine.
  4. In Google Maps, travelers must download the area’s trail map to have it available offline. A good internet connection or wifi is required for this step. So, please make sure they download it before their arrival to El Chaltén due to poor or lack of connectivity in the zone.

If you wish to book this product for your customers, please inform our Kallpa Executives.
