From here, your eyes will record the first of the many picture postcards that you will treasure from Torres del Paine National Park.
Lake Sarmiento is 90 square kilometres in size and, unlike other lakes of glacial origin present in the park, this one owes its origin to the rains that gave it the intense blue colour that we now admire.
Sarmiento Lake and Laguna Amarga belong to the same basin hemmed in by glacial moraine. Its base comprises the rocks of the Cerro Toro Formation.
