Several colorful lakes with some spectcular flora. There are a variety of things offered at different lakes - paddling, horseback riding, hiking, camping, etc. Ask around for a couple of other lakes that are not on the beaten path.

Alpine forest, multi lakes, incredible views. The water in each lake is multi colored -blues, greens, gold. Clean and pure. The highlight was paddling a Huck Finn-like log raft to an island filled with orchids. Thought it would be kitschy but found it awesome. Dress...More

Get bit warmer clothes, but dont get disappointed if the sun disappears for a while, it comes back in regular frequency and does no rain (outside rainy season). So you can swim as well. 5 lakes in price. Rafting or canoeing is nice. English speaking...More
