Paradise awaits where the world ends: a visit to the dropout village of El Chaltén, deep in Patagonia, at the southern tip of South America.
Even getting there is an adventure. From Buenos Aires, it's almost 3,000 kilometers south through nothing but pampas and plains, where the only splashes of color are a few yellow road signs. The route leads past crystal clear lakes, along the largest ice field in South America, through a deserted expanse. One could get the illusion that the earth is still healthy.
