One of the gateways to the legendary Enchantment Lakes Basin, Colchuck Lake is a big, turquoise blue alpine lake set in a rugged and cliff-ringed cirque. It is a popular area for hikers and climbers year round, though the lake freezes in the winter. The sheer beauty of the area can be hard to describe but has inspired the names of many features in the area, such as Dragontial Peak and Aasgard Pass, both visible from the lake.
