Lakes Curruhue and Termas de Epulafquen Corridor
A winding gravel road worth doing slowly to meet these forests nestled between volcanoes and lakes.
Driving 31 km on Prov. Route 62, you will enter LanĂn National ParkÂ and Lakes Curruhue Chico and Grande.Â The views are outstanding and both lakes have very well shelteredÂ beaches, ideal to enjoy during the summer.
SomeÂ another 20 km ahead you will find Laguna Verde, characterized by low coasts and large volcanic sand beaches. For some people, this is what paradise looks like.
In this area you can observe a curious formation called Escorial. It is a lava layer channeled into an old glacier valley with a length of 7,5 km and width of 2,5 km.
The last stage of this excursion is a 15 km trip to the Epulafquen Hotsprings. A basic infrastructure for thermal baths and a camping area can be found here. The border crossing to Chile, Paso CarirriĂ±e (only open in summer), is only meters away.
