"The lake, the mountains, the woods, everything so scenic! "

Known as the Lake of the Desert showcases one of the most beautiful waterfalls amongst the bushes. Along the way, you'll also fall in love with the Fitz Roy glacier and the wooden bridges that add to the beauty of this place. The location looked more like a fairytale than anything else.
