About this spot
NOTE - This a very serious full day/18km hike that ascends and again descends about 900m. It should only be attempted by people in good health and fitness.

This lake below the famous three towers is TdP’s only iconic location that isn’t easily accessible. Expect a shimmering blue lake below one of the most spectacular mountainous landscape you’ll ever witness. If you want to shoot sunrise here you have to either camp at the lake (illegally) or start walking from Hotel Las Torres at about 4 in the morning.

It’s worth the effort - you’ll be at a glacial lake below three kilometer-high granite towers.
