Puerto Blest

Puerto Blest si trova all'estremità occidentale del lago Nahuel Huapi. Fa parte del Parco Nazionale Nahuel Huapi nella provincia del Rio Negro in Argentina. Il lago Nahuel Huapi è diviso in diverse sezioni e il braccio occidentale del lago è la sezione Blest. Il ramo Blest del lago copre un'area di circa 14 miglia quadrate. All'ingresso della sezione Blest del lago si trova l'isola Centinela, dove è sepolto l'esploratore Francisco Moreno. Arrivò in questa regione dell'Argentina alla fine del 1800 e in seguito fondò il Parco Nazionale Nahuel Huapi.

Da Puerto Blest, puoi raggiungere la cascata di Los Cantaros e salire i gradini vicino alla cascata fino al lago Los Cantaros che si alimenta nelle cascate. Durante le escursioni nella zona, troverai cipressi e alberi di coihue che crescono nel microclima della foresta pluviale di questa zona. Questa regione riceve più precipitazioni di qualsiasi altra parte dell'Argentina e qui crescono piante e funghi che non puoi trovare in altre parti del paese. Dal lago si possono anche vedere diverse vette della catena montuosa delle Ande.
