“Surprising all the way”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

when driving through out this region, every turn you make deserves a photo. Great lanscape indeed. I believe the mountains must come along in the same frame, so it's not only a nice few.

“sorprendente / surprising”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Llegar al lago Fagnano desde Ushuaia significa cruzar la cordillera por un camino de ruta maravilloso.
El lago mide más de 100 km de largo y es de color esmeralda. Una de las cosas mas asombrosas que hay. Vale el viaje.

Getting to Lake Fagnano from Ushuaia means crossing the Cordillera by a wonderful road trip.
The lake is over 100 km long and turquoise. One of the most amazing things to visit. Worth the trip.

“Maybe my expectations were too high”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 via mobile

So I have been to Salta, Iguazu etc. so I was expecting "wow". It was ok.

Tour was not expensive, the place we went to for lunch was nice but I just wasn't "wowed" by the views. The girabaldi pass is only 400m up, not that impressive, nothing like driving on the slopes of the Andes at Mendoza.

The lakes are pretty but not stunning and often obscured by the weather.

Maybe I was expecting too much.

“Watch out the road picturing the view!”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

A beautiful place to take pictures from Fagnano and Escondido's lakes but there is no infrasctructure on the road to do it. The cars and buses just stop along the roadside (where it is always raining and which road is very slithery because of the snow) and people go to outside to take pictures. But the view compensates the risks.
