Trekking in the Patagonian Andes - Lakes District (Chapter)
This is the Lakes District chapter from Lonely Planet's Trekking in the Patagonian Andes guidebook.
Given its ready accessibility, it's not hard to understand why the lush, green Lakes District has become the premier trekking region of Chile and Argentina. Undulating hills, snowcapped volcanoes, huge glacial lakes and diverse wildlife make this area a delight to explore.
