Mountains and Grasslands
Patagonia is a sparsely-populated region located at the southern end of South America. Because of it’s location, the region lies in both Argentina and Chile. The region contains the southern section of the Andes mountains, as well as deserts, pampas and grasslands. With its mountainous terrain, this area creates two coasts: one western, facing the Pacific Ocean, and the other eastern, facing the Atlantic.
Naturalists the world over prize this area for its magestic mountains and dramatic landscapes. For this reason, two national parks protect the region’s splendor. These are Torres del Paine National Park and Los Glaciers National Park. The latter boasts walls of ice that jut towards the sky. While both contain spires, peaks and rivers.
Here, at the southern end of the earth, nature displays its rugged beauty. Cold and unforgiving, this landscape is a feast for the eyes, as well as a challenge for the soul.
