  • The Lake of that name complicated is one of the photographic eye drops for your shade of blue, his placidity, reflections. And the second stage of the trekking where we stayed at the refuge Los cuernos, with visual on one side and mountains on the other Lake. It was a refuge without much comfort for sleep and food was mediocre. They always say "it's because you're starting the season and the class is new! OK, if you survive!
