El Chalten trekking to Candelario Mancilla, Chile

Hi,

We are planning the trek for early February 2018:

1. How reliable are buses to lago del desierto? How frequent?

2. Can we align bus from El Chalten with boats on the lake to the border post (punta norte)? Are these boats reliable? Schedule?

3. Is it possible todo the crossing to Villa O Higgins in one day? Is it recommendable to stay the night in Candelario?

4. If staying the night, do we need any tents/camping stuff etc.?

Any other sharing info re the above route would be great!

Thanks so much!

L

The hike is 23 km, rather easy. There is a homestay at Candelario Mansilla.
