Hiked to this beautiful lake in Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile via the trail that goes by the Salte Grande Waterfall. Beautiful hike that ends in an elevated view of the lake and Cuernos peaks rising behind the lake. Great picture spot!

You can appreciate the Beauty of this lake best when you stay at Refugio los cuernos and, after a good sleep, walk to the shore just outside the hostel first Thing in the morning. Turquoise icy Beauty. Unforgettable.

One of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. The water is an amazing color and just looks so pure and untouched. It was very windy this day and made beautiful rippling sounds on the water.

Beautiful scenery from this lake at the eastern base of Torre de Paine! It was a really cloudy and cold day when we started, but the clouds lifted and you could see the peaks rising above them - absolutely awesome!

There isn't a bad vista anywhere in the park. We stopped to take photos then moved on to the next scenic view. Breathtakingly beautiful.

A walk along Lake Nordenskjold in "must see" while visiting Torres del paine. You can walk all the way to the Moutain Hutt "Los Quernos" or just take a few hours walk from Refugio Torre Central (and back)

We visited the Lake on horse back as one of the trips from the Hotel Las Torres. Spectacular scenery and I loved the horse riding - although I have never done it before. If you get the chance go for it!
