Formed by a melting glacier, this beautiful lake is a milky turquoise color, produced by the algae at the bottom.

This is the best spot to view the "horns" and the amazing green and blue hues of the water below them. Conveniently located not too far from much of the park's lodgings. Truly feels like a place from another world.

Go by car and enjoy it or do the trekking ride along side it. There's no need to spend the might outside just walk as long as you want and return to Las Torres Hotel through he Cuernos trek.
