  • This is a place natural wonderful due to the formation natural of ice that is produced in thousands of millions of years. At the foot of this hanging glacier is a lagoon, which was formed by the melting of the glacier. It is a perfect place for people who like or are they dedicated to trekking, mountaineering and ice climbing. It is located towards the interior of the Valley sands walking 3 hours approx. recommendations go with mountain equipment appropriate according to the time of year where you want to go. Ask permission to the administrators of this enclosure to to enter. (via mail)

  • Nao podemos visitar o lago porque houve deslizamento de neve e a trilha estava impedida
  • Away from the city (of Santiago, nearest city) Ideal to spend a pleasant day in the pure air. Important to go in a pickup truck with good traction and appropriate clothing (runs icy wind) in the compound of the CONAF not you can camp but in the village of the sector there is camping at affordable prices. Also in the sector, there is a thermal bath "Baños Morales" water is not so hot but the brave can take the risk. The hike to glaciers is not complicated, must take your time and bring water and suitable because the climate is changing constantly, can pass a cute Sun to a wonderful snowfall. And if you can a camera to immortalize beautiful places that can deliver you the Cordillera de Los Andes.

  • Beautiful place! Tiring in the first section by its steep ascent, but to the lagoon is the reward! Recommendation brings clothing, sunscreen and not as much clothing as in walk da heat! Much water and hopefully climb early WAD down and heat :)
