We were on the bus between Villa Cerro Castillo and Puerto Río Tranquilo (Patagonia, Chile) when suddenly the view changed.
“Which lake is that?!” I asked Carlos. “Lago General Carrera” he replied. We were arriving at our destination; a very small town on the lake and I just couldn’t believe the colour of it!I wouldn’t know how to make water this blue using editing techniques, even if I tried! It really was incredible.
This lake is special! Not just because of the colour but also because it’s Chile’s largest lake, and the second biggest in South America. It is actually shared by both Chile and Argentina.
Upon arrival we wanted to climb up as high as possible to get the best view we could. We found the tiniest of paths and made it to the top. To be greeted with these views. The higher up we got, the better it looked…The colour of the water changed as the sun peeked in and out of the clouds. Going from vibrant blue to turquoise and back again.And the temperature changed as much as the water colour did. It was one of those places where you had three layers on that you were taking on and off all day long. As well as taking your hood on and off as there would be rain, then sun, then cold wind and back again.Up close, the water changes colour too. Becoming much less impressive than up high. I guess it is a trick of the light and how high up you are that gives it that gorgeous colour!The next day, we took another tiny path to have any peek at that blue. We weren’t disappointed. I really have never seen water this colour before, it was so special.And that is why Patagonia is so special, because it never stops surprising you with it’s incredible natural beauty.
Where have you seen the most beautiful water? And do you have an exciting plan for this long weekend? We are heading South to camp, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
