Cerro Leones

At the eastern end of Lake Nahuel Huapi, about 15 kilometers from the center of Bariloche, the land changes dramatically: this is where a cold steppe zone begins and, if you continue east and north, eventually changes to a temperate steppe better known as la pampa, or grasslands famous for producing high-quality Argentine beef.

You can see the change in terrain from these pictures, taken during our tour of an extinct volcano called Cerro Leones.
