HABITATS
Forest, High Andean Steppe

Chapelco is a rock massif stretching for more than 20 km from San Martin de los Andes to Meliquina Lake. It has a volcanic origin, made of basaltic rocks that were later carved by the action of the glaciers. We will trek from 1.200 to 1.800 m reaching the upper story of the Patagonian forest and the high-Andean grasslands. There we will enjoy amazing views and have good opportunities for high Andes endemic species.
