Although many lakes can be found in the Andean and coastal regions of central Chile, the south (Sur de Chile) is definitely the country’s most lacustrine area. Southern Chile stretches from below the Bío-Bío River at about 37° south latitude to Chacao channel at about 42° south latitude. The hundreds of rivers that descend from the Andes form lakes, some quite large, as they reach the lower elevations. The lakes in this region are remarkably beautiful. The snow-covered Andes form a constant backdrop to vistas of clear blue or even turquoise waters, as at Todos los Santos Lake.
