We prepare to dock in one of the bays, where we equip ourselves and dive into the waters of Lake Correntoso, the warmest lake in the entire region. There, the enchanted forest awaits us, where the dive will take us from the surface to reach depths of 15 to 20 meters.
Una de las características distintivas del buceo en lagos de montaña es la gran visibilidad que se experimenta. Las aguas nos permiten disfrutar de la claridad y la nitidez de cada detalle del fascinante paisaje acuático. Los rayos de sol se filtran a través de las aguas, creando juegos de luces y sombras que realzan la belleza de los fondos lacustres.
The flora and fauna that inhabit the lakes also provide an unparalleled experience. When diving in Lake Correntoso, we are surrounded by a lush green environment, which sometimes turns white with the reflection of the snow that covers the surrounding mountains.
