Most people drive right by this lake, but on a still day with no wind, the lake provides a mirror reflection of las Torres above. Flamingos also like to feed here on the brine shrimp and it's a good place for a picnic lunch.

This is an easy trek starting from Laguna Amarga ranger station. From there, the trail leads south through an area that local guides dubbed the “puma restaurant”. One could see gunacos skeletons along the trails. The highlight was probably a steep climb to a large...More

Definitely you will see some flamingos. And you will see some Guanacos (although you will see tons of them in the national park but the scene that contains Guanacos and the lagoon was wonderful too me)

When you are lucky and the sun is shining, please visit Laguna Amarga! The lake will be a mirror in which you can see the mountains (Torres) and that is so special!!

Torres del Paine is blessed with a number of beautiful lakes, each with clear blue water (on a sunny day) and with spectacular surroundings. Amarga fits in with the others. Getting there is certainly a big part of the enjoyment.
