What people like most about this place is that it is an area full of contrast, so you can find rain forests, mountains, and valleys.

The Nahuel Huapi national park is the most important in Argentina. It is located in the southern part of the country near a city called Bariloche where the weather is extremely cold, especially during June and July.

This park is a huge place with areas of luxuriant beauty. There are several mountains that are notable for their height, lots of peaks, incredible valleys, and many trees are covered by pure, white snow. Rivers and lakes cross the whole park. The largest lake is the Nahuel Huapi Lake, in which, according to what people believe, there is a monster called Nahuelito.

During the spring season, when the weather gets warmer, it is possible to see little waterfalls. This is because the snow defrosts and starts fallling down the mountains at a very high speed, creating wonderful cascades and falls.

What people like most about this place is that it is an area full of contrast, so you can find rain forests, mountains, and valleys. There are also beautiful flowers all around the place. The variety is incredible, and the colors they have take away anybody's breath. The wonderful scenery of this place definitely makes everybody feel like in paradise.
