Craziest hike I’ve ever done, definitely a difficult endeavor, nothing but elevation but gives you a great sense of accomplishment. Last bit is scrambling up rocks. Make sure to get to the park early.

Not an easy hike, took me 8 hours in total. In fact, I've seen better forests and peaks in Chile, so not verry impressed. OK for some sports.

The view is worth it! Hard toward the end but made for one of the best days / hikes of my life!

Exciting, technical trail that I would rate as difficult not so much for any elevation gains, but more for the loose rocks and ever-changing landscape. Park at the Portillo Hotel and Ski Resort (free) in the off-season (southern hemisphere summer) and proceed to the left side of the lake. Most of the trail is along the shoreline and is relatively easy with a few climbs to circumvent snow gullies and steep shoreline spots that are impassable. Dangerous, loose rocks on climbs and descents, but the views are mind-blowing and will leave a lasting impression. Not sure about overnight restrictions, but there is no entry fee and swimming is allowed but as with any alpine lake, it is darn cold. Mystical location that oozes history. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. The fishing is decent too.
