Laguna del Desierto (Lake of the Desert)

Laguna del Desierto (Lake of the Desert) Review

The Laguna del Desierto—a lovely lake surrounded by lush forest, complete with orchids and mossy trees—is 37 km (23 mi) north of El Chaltén on R23, a dirt road. Hotels in El Chaltén can arrange trip for about 150 pesos for the day. Locals recommend visiting Lago del Desierto on a rainy day, when more ambitious hikes are not an option and the dripping green misty forest is extra mysterious.
