The steaming mountain

In Argentinian Patagonia there is a hill that seems to smoke. Do you know him?

Santa Cruz
Sometimes appearances deceive, and sometimes that's what is most enjoyed. In Argentinian Patagonia, where the landscapes surprise us in a thousand ways, there is a hill that seems to smoke: it is in the province of Santa Cruz and reaches 3375 meters above sea level. We are talking about Cerro El Chaltén, also known as Fitz Roy. This is an incredible group of rock towers that emerge into the sky, whose summit provides a visual spectacle that confuses and enchants: its ridges, which remain much of the time among the clouds, give the impression that the hill is surrounded by smoke. So much so that, formerly, Fitz Roy was confused with a volcano.This hill is located on the border between Chile and Argentina, but is observed and accessed from the city of El Chalten. It is located within Los Glaciares National Park, on the Argentine side, and the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, on the Chilean side. The area is full of unforgettable postcards: forests, glaciers, inhospitable lands and monumental views.We know that Patagonia offers us a thousand reasons to visit it; this “smoky mountain” (such is the meaning of Chalten  in Tehuelche language) is just one more of them. Well worth giving yourself that taste.
