Departure from hotel in Chile Chico to begin our tour to the National Reserve Jeinimeni.
The road borders the Jeinimeni river, which marks the boundary between Chile and Argentina until reaching the entrance of the reserve. There we will follow the path going into the valley to the camping area where we will prepare the bicycles.
On the tour you will see the intense turquoise color of the waters of Lake Jeinimeni, which is fed by the snowmelt of the snowdrifts and the extensive native forest. If you are lucky, you can see condor, eagle, kestrel, thrush, cachaña and black carpenter.
In mountain bike we will arrive to the Esmeralda lagoon, we will leave the bicycles and we will make a hiking towards the Verde Lake and we will return by the same way.
It should be noted that Lake Jeinimeni is located in the middle of a true natural altar, an ideal place to practice sport fishing. On the way we made a stop at the Los Flamencos lagoon.
