lago pehoe mapLake Pehoé is a surface water body located in Torres del Paine National Park, in the Magallanes Region of southern Chile.

The lake is fed mainly by Paine River, but it also receives the waters of the outlet of Skottsberg Lake.

Paine River waters feeding the Pehoé Lake have emerged from the Salto Grande waterfall. In this upper reach of the Pehoe Lake watershed there are numerous flora and fauna, including grazing wild Guanaco.

Lago Pehoe is located in the very heart of Torres del Paine National Park and was created in 1959 and declared Reservation of the Biosfera by the UNESCO in 1978.
