Lago Pehoé is a turquoise lake located just beneath the iconic Paine Massif in Torres del Paine National Park. The lake is fed mainly by Paine River through the Nordenskjöld Lake, however it also receives the waters of the outlet of Skottsberg Lake.
The Paine River waters that feed Lago Pehoé come from the Salto Grande waterfall. In the upper reach of Lago Pehoé can expect to see numerous flora and fauna, including grazing wild guanaco. Vsitors might also spot ñandus or rheas – indigenous flightless birds, similar in appearance to an ostrich – or perhaps even a Chilean Condor soaring above Pehoé’s fluorescent blue waters.
