The access to the lake is along a narrow twisting road blasted out of a rock-face, you normally have to go to South America to find something like this. If you do not want to drive yourself (understandable!), take the post-bus, which only just squeezes...More

Lovely landscapes even when it rains. The place is really quiet and it's amazing to rest our mind...
