This tour is one of the favorites of walkers due to the very varied panoramas it offers during its journey. You will get to know the Turquesa Lagoon, a beautiful body of water located about 30 kilometers north of the city of Ushuaia. Its name is due to the intense turquoise color of its waters, which are fed by streams and rivers in the area. This color is due to the presence of minerals at the bottom of the lagoon. Also Mount Carbajal where, from its summit, you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the city, the Beagle Channel and the Fuegian Andes. Do you want a full trekking experience? I chose the excursion to La Laguna Turquesa and Monte Carbajal!
An unmissable tour where you can appreciate wonderful views and very varied panoramas. The excursion to Laguna Turquesa and Monte Carbajal begins with a walk of approximately one hour through the forest and then into a high valley, to first reach Laguna Turquesa. Lagoon that stands out for its greenish color, which is due to the presence of minerals at the bottom and that makes it look almost like an eye at the bottom of the valley. Surrounded by mountains and forests, we will make the first stop to enjoy the surroundings up close and enjoy nature.
Continuing the itinerary, we will continue ascending the ridge known as “Gotama”, to reach the rocky slope that leads us to the summit of Mount Carbajal. This ascent does not present great physical difficulty and has an invaluable reward with magnificent views of the Carbajal valley and its peat bogs. At this point, weather permitting, there will be a lunch break.
The way back leads us to another valley, the Olum, in this way, we take a loop tour and we will be able to obtain a more complete knowledge of the area where we carry out our trekking.
