The stop at the Saltos de Petrohué was the best part of my trip across the Lago Todos los Santos. The Saltos are part of the Río Petrohué, which drains Lago Todos los Santos. The formacion of the Saltos are pretty normal, but what makes them stand out is that the water is the craziest color! It's aquamarine, and the way it flows it looks like someone dumped a huge vat of dye in the water. The locals say the water's this color because of minerals that are deposited into Lago Todos los Santos from the Cerro Tronador. It only costs 1.200 to get in and there are a fair amount of trails to take and wander. Luckily you can access this place on your own with out a tour group, so it's definitely worth a stop.
