Ventisquero Colgante - The Hanging Glacier
Ventisquero Colgante, the Hanging Glacier, the world-famous glacier of Queulat National Park in Patagonia, is a spectacular sight with its awe-inspiring glacial waterfall, lagoon and river.
After hundreds of years in frozen form, after coming into contact with the majestic Andes Mountains, a continual supply of amazingly pure glacial melt releases downward as a towering glacial waterfall, in its original untouched liquid form, as it was hundreds of years ago. Unfortunately, this amazing supply of pure glacial water not only goes to waste, flowing into the nearby fjords, but in doing so, it can potentially disrupt the underwater ecosystem of the countless saltwater species in the vicinity.
Imagine having the ability to play a role in protecting this pristine environment and the nearby ecosystem of saltwater aquatic life, while also bringing this extraordinarily rare and abundant supply of pure glacial water to those in need of it worldwide.

Our registered consumptive water rights total over 130 liters per second, allowing us to capture and utilize over 4 billion liters of glacial water annually from its pristine source, while helping the local dolphins, sea lions and countless other saltwater species in the area.
