Beautiful capture. The background is imposing!
Hi AcheG, welcome!!! I am very happy that you have enjoyed these landscape in the Lanin National Park. Located in southwestern Neuquen Province, its area covers more than 400,000 hectares sheltering a very important part of the Andean/Patagonian Wood. At this Park you can enjoy species like Pellín Oak, the Pehuén and the Raulí. And best of all, all this beauty is surrounded by a breathtaking mountain landscape as well as twenty-four lakes of Glacial origins.
Its name derives from the Lanin Volcano (photo), a 3,776 meters high peak that has eternal snows and dominates this Park’s landscapes from any of its angles.
The dominant species in the north part of this park is the Pehuén or Araucaria, the Mapuches’ Sacred Tree. This conifer may reach 45 meters and its top resembles a sun umbrella.
In the densest parts of the wood there is the Pudú, a small deer with its body perfectly adapted to this environment. It is one of the endangered species protected within this Park. The other one is a kind of mink called Huillín.
Thank you very much for you beautifu comment, friendly visit and Like!!!
