From El Chalten, hike to Laguna Torre. At Laguna Torre you can go around the lake on the right side or the left side. The left side involves a Tyrolean Traverse that is permanently set up across the river.
Which side is better is up for debate. Be prepared for loose scree either way. The two options join at the head of the lake, and you hike across a dry glacier, and many moraines, medial and otherwise. The Niponino camp is not easily distinguishable from the rest of the moraine, and GPS coordinates help in locating it. There is a fox that hangs out at camp: the infamous Zorro. He will eat your food, given a chance.
