We had some time to kill after checking into our hotel so we walked along this beautiful lake for a couple of hours. It is pristine and has very interesting colors. Worth the easy trek!

A lovely lake - easy to reach - great mountain views and reflections in the water. The walk to this lake was a relatively easy trek, and we did it on the first day as an introduction to Patagonia.

The most spectacular views you’ll ever see. An unmissable experience. The waterfall is a warm up, the short hike to the lake a teaser for the views you will see at the end-enough to make you burst into tears with the sheer beauty of the...More
