Torres del Paine National Park is one of the most magical national wonders of Chile’s Patagonia region. It has everything from granite towers to glaciers, but it’s actually worth visiting for its lakes alone. Here are three that will knock you off your feet with their majestic natural beauty.

Lake Pehoé

Set against the scenic mountain backdrop, Pehoé is one of the lakes that you shouldn’t miss for the world while in Chile. It will rock your world with its bright blue waters and it’s truly magical to see the mountains of the Cuernos del Paine reflected inside it.

Grey Lake

Located in close proximity to Pehoé, Grey Lake deserves a spot on your bucket list if you want to check out some magical glaciers while in Chile. Picturesque icebergs and glaciers can be seen from the shore of the lake and you can also hike in the area to check them out up-close.

Nordenskjöld Lake

Nordenskjöld is another picturesque lake inside Torres del Paine National Park, perfect for passionate hikers who want to explore the stunning nature around it. One of its best features is the Salto Grande waterfall, which also merges with Lake Pehoé.
