What if we go in search of a natural jewel?

Just when the immensity begins to take your breath away, you will see the Carbajal Valley , with its particular composition of peat formed over thousands of years.
The adventure continues crossing the valley and accessing a second mountain range that houses an incredible body of water called Emerald Lagoon, due to its extraordinary color, which stands out mainly during the summer, and maintains a color that stands out from the landscape during the fall, until it freezes and turns white during the winter snowfalls.
