Argentina is a land of contrasts, from the vast plains of the East to the Andes in the West where Aconcagua, the highest peak of the Western Hemisphere at 6,959 m, towers above the other mountains. The variety of landscape ranges from the high altiplano of the Northwest – with its deserts, valleys, gorges and brightly coloured hills - to the lakes, forests, glaciers, steppe, mountains and cliffs of Patagonia.
