  • The reserve has a truly exceptional beauty, camping at the foot of two glaciers is without a doubt a beautiful experience. Trekking is of high difficulty by what must be well prepared and take food for at least 3 days. The water is very pure and abounds in place.

  • I did a 4 day hike (starting in Las Horquetas) to the lagoon and it's very difficult but rewarding at the same time. The 1 day hike it's difficult as well and dangerous, but still worth it. I will do it again for sure, even it is not an easy hike (it has high difficulty)
  • Not an easy day hike to the lagoon, but in good weather the views are amazing. Park entry fee of 5000 CLP for foreigners. The camping near the enterance to the park is quieter than the camping in the back of Villa Cerro Castillo
  • From the top of the hill you can have an amazing view of the valley, the Cerro Castillo Hill and lagoon. The short hike (you leave from Villa Cerro Castillo) takes about 6 hours, and it is a difficult climb, but totally worth it.
  • The lagune is amazing !!! The reserve a lot of place to do camping
  • I did the 5 day hike and it was one of the best hikes I did in Patagonia (probably anywhere). It is extremely beautiful and not crowded as most of them are down there! Then only bad thing is that it can snow on any day, and it is also extremely windy!
