Lake Colbún

In Ecorefugio

With 5,700 hectares and 1,490 million cubic meters, Lake Colbún is the largest artificial reservoir in Chile. Located in the Maule region, it was built between 1980 and 1985 in order to retain the waters of the river of the same name, which are used for irrigation and for the production of hydroelectric power.

In the summer period its waters reach a temperature of 23° C. For this reason, and because of the warm weather during the summer months, it is widely used for the practice of water sports. Its waters are very transparent, since the Maule River drags very little mountain sediment.
