“Pleasant walks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

It was impressive that there are so many beaitiful lakes near the top of trail. We planned 3 nights camping as Lonely Planet Trekking say. However when we arrived at camp site at the end of first day. There was only one another person. We realize that most are doing day trek.
Moreover one couple has lost companion at stiff edge of trail. Probably falling down at the cliff.
We gave up further walk and returned on next day.
It is beautiful and warm trail.

“Strenuous but gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Do be sure to get proper directions to the Park and trail access. It is a little vague. The popular lakes trail was gorgeous but truly steep. We are decent hikers and did not reach the lakes after 2 and a half hours of hiking. We thought the 3.5 hr. designation was round trip...no, we learned, one way. We stopped at the waterfalls and they were spectacular.

“Tres Lagos Walk--not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Getting up to the Tres Lagos is strenuous; don't let anybody tell you different! (We encountered a large American family where at least two of the older family members were struggling badly, though they had been told by some tour-guide type that this was an 'easy' walk, or the like. They weren't bitter about it, but tour guides in this respect can be [nay, they are] very irresponsible.)

Once you get up to the level of the lakes, you're in a heavenly place. Absolutely beautiful. And you can do a long, circular walk around the whole area.
