Feels thread. Im living near amazonas since 2009.
This is a view from Cerro Campanario, in Bariloche.
This is "Cajon del Azul" a very good hiking trail in El Bolson. The first stop lead you to this, where you can see the river from above, its like a canyon. You make night in there and the next day you can reach a little glaciar called "Hielo del Azul"
A beautiful view from Cerro Campanario - Bariloche, lel. Expect a lot of wind up there.
Another one from "Campanario Hill" I fail to make the panoramic view...
4 hours away from Bariloche. Its like the hippiest town in Patagonia.
We were drinking that water all along our hiking.
well, you should try it. Those last 5 states that ends Argentina its what we call Patagonia, and its like an 80% cold desert, and a 20% of this rocky woods. There is also a region called Patagonia in neighbour country Chile.
Maybe last pic I share. Feel free to ask questions, contribute, etc...
Thanks for the trip report, anon. I've always had a fascination with Patagonia and would love to go there. But it's pretty similar to the landscapes I already have in the Pacific Northwest of North America, which makes it a lower priority for travel over more "exotic" locations for myself.
So I don't know if I'll ever make it there in my life.
Yeah, from Alaska, Rocky Mountains to Los Andes all the landscapes shares something.
I use to live in the north part of Patagonia. Desert, cold in winter (-10 °C) hot in summer (40 °C). In the region were those pics were taken expect a max of 20 °C in summer. You can sleep very well outside with a 4 season sleeping bag. Never been there in winter. It is snowy zone and I use poorfag gear.
People is nice, like in every little town I guess. And we are talking about this woods region in Patagonia. They live from tourism. About the food... What I understand its like you wanna go outside of people sign? Dont do that, you will get lost, people always get lost and its a pain in the ass for everyone. Too many foreigns have died there. Theres plenty of camping zones, most of them are free. Hiking trials. hostels were you can meet local tourist (the coolest people you will meet). In small villages around big tourist centers, like Villa La Angostura, Junin De Los Andes you can hunt big games, some (wild pigs?), and fish. Theres plenty of national park, so better ask with local autorithies.
And last. Yeah, I live in the desert portion all my life. I started hate the constant howling wind and I left for the jungles near amazonas.
I find some.
This is going to Zapala in the Provincia of Neuquen. Not my hometown because my hometown its a 40 blocks x 40 blocks cement square. Out of there, you could find these landscapes.
Cerro Michacheo, I went there with my brother on my last visit to collect volcanic sand. A few years ago a chilean volcano sput ashes and sand all over patagonia.
Girls love volcanic sand ;)
Thats how volcano sand looks here. It forms like a sugar shell all over the regular sand.
Got it. I found a pic taken from the tallest building in my hometown. I use to squat there with my punk friends.
Cipolletti, Rio Negro, patagonia Argentina.
Yeah, Im glad you find this post!
That pic its part a panoramic view from Cerro Campanario that I never manage to make. Those pics are 11 years old and have been rescued multiple times from formatted HDDs, so, still trying to find the others.
Definitely, Patagonia its full of europeans.
In recent years pro-USA conservatives have open the central states to drug lords, but they are away from patagonia. Its more drugs on the streets, but away from big cities life is good. Narcos use Argentina to send drugs to europe. Its not like you see bands killing each others.
Cheaper, you can buy a lot of land with access to rivers and hunt fields. Here are drugs, but not narcos. Nothing like Taken, Sicario, Pablo Escobar.
HA, a los argentinos les encantan los mexicanos los brasileros y los españoles, las chicas te van a querer follar todo el dia, y los pibes te van a invitar a todos los asados y a tomar cerveza con ellos. Y n importa que seas de Castilla te van a bautizar como "El Gallego" JAJA
1 U$D=14 pesos
Alquileres 2000-3500 pesos
Nafta 16 pesos el litro
En comida podes llegar a gastar 2000 por mes.
Con el nuevo gobierno neoliberal, y de derecha, los servicios aumentaron el 400%. La gente que antes vivia con sueldo de 12000 ahora va a vivir ajustada, o directamente pasa a pobre.
Yo venia viviendo con 1500 pesos mensuales, porque soy un estudiante buscavida jaja.
