2. The lookout point. If you want to acquire not just good but excellent view of the different bodies of water with other mountains and floras as a backdrop, all you have to do is head to the lookout point through Lapataia bay just a few minutes walk from Lengas wood.

If you’re worried about where to stay at the National Park for an overnight or days of settling in the place, there are organized camping tents near the Lake Roca all for free for public guests to take advantage. However, if you’re looking for a more comfortable place to put your feet up, you can go to Ushuaia City and get yourself cozy in some inns and hotels.
