Lake Todos los Santos is located in the Los Lagos region of southern Chile. Translated from Spanish, the name of the lake sounds like `` Lake of All Saints ''. It is located about 95 km from the town of Puerto Montt and 75 km from Puerto Varas and borders the Vincente Perez Rosales National Park.
The lake has a surface area of 178.5 square kilometers and a depth of 337 meters. Status The national park has ensured the protection of the lake's environment. This form of the lake is obtained as a result of glacial and volcanic processes.
The main tributary of the lake is the Peulla River and the Rio Negro River, near the Peulla area. Its outflow is the Petroue River, with an average outflow of 270 cubic meters per second.

There are two main lake ports on the shores of Lake Todos los Santos: Petroue in the western part and Peulla in the eastern part, but there is no usual road connecting these places.
