A lake inside a crater? And you can go there by car? Yes, and you can also take other splendid pictures in your way to get there. It is definetely a must-go. Besides, it is just 10 min from the village and their hotels.

This should be an stop on your visit to patagonia, we know there are many lakes in this area, and everything is beautiful, but being standing on top of the volcan, enjoying the quiet beauty of this lake, it's something different.
