Estando en Chelenko: /
Visit us and get to know the most beautiful lake of which you have not heard.
His name is an enigma: Chelenko, is an indigenous word, some say it
means "Lake of Temporary". While others believe that it comes from the Spanish word "Chulengo", the name of the calves of the guanacos, those cousins of the alpahacas of the northern Andes who roam the open and dry steppe of Patagonia.
But like the name itself of Patagonia, the antecedents of this name remain in the dark...
