Good waterfall to see and there’s a short hike behind it that you can take to see the French valley and the horns! Watch out for rainy or windy weather otherwise a great short hike!

Nice walk, worth doing it. Just take some hat, gloves and scarf. Cars must be stopped at parking some 500 meters away from the fall. There are coffee shops in nearby.

The mountains placed behind the waterfall make for a very nice photo opportunity. Stop here to enjoy the vista.

We stopped here briefly while out trekking in the park. It was especially pretty when we passed by on the return as the late afternoon sun created rainbows in the mist of the waterfall.

The weather in Torre Del Paine was pretty unpredictable. It can drizzle 1 moment and become sunny the next. This waterfall was a short walk from the parking area and easy to reach. Good to visit even if it was raining. Lots of water. Nice!

hiking to here and then arriving, the cold waters were very refreshing on my face. it's not as spectacular as the lake, but believe me, it's just as good as the hike.

It was a short walk to see it and we only stayed for a little bit, but the waterfall had me hypnotized.

We saw the Salto Grande when there was more water then even our guide had ever seen. Very impressive! It was too windy to fully enjoy it without danger. Worth the trip.

The things I mostly remember from this trip are the strong cold winds mixed with the majestic sound of the waterfall. A beautiful introduction to Patagonia nature!
