THE DOMUYO VOLCANO, THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN PATAGONIA

domuyoLocated in the Cordillera del Viento in the northwest of the Province of Neuquén with a height of 4,709m (15,540ft).

THE LANÍN VOLCANO

laninIt is situated within El Parque Nacional Lanín, in the southwest of the Province of Neuquén . The reserve was created in 1937 to preserve the Patagonian alpine forest typical of the area. It is here that one can find the pehuén, a conifer of amazing size and beauty, as well as lenga and colihue to mention only some of the other flora. The local fauna includes the ciervo (deer) pudú (the smallest in the world measuring a mere 35 cm/14in. in height), pumas, fox, the Patagonian otter (huillín), considered to be endangered, and a wide range of birds and fish.

Access to the volcano is from San Martín de Los Andes , a small tourist town surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Besides the buses that go to San Martin de Los Andes it can be reached by plane. The airport is in Chapelco, 25 km (16 miles) away.
