A glimpse of Argentina’s Cerro Campanario

When I was visiting my friend in Argentina last year, we decided to visit the city of San Carlos de Bariloche, which is known as the Switzerland of South America. One of the first places we visited after checking into the Greenhouse Hostel was Cerro Campanario.

Rather than taking the ski lift up to save us both a few Argentine pesos, we decided to hike the mountain. We were both in great, athletic shape (she a soccer play, WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED!? & me a volleyball player), however, we did have to stop throughout the climb because of the elevation and the angle of ascent.

Once we made it to the top, this was the welcome we received:

This site has been rated one of the Top 10 Views of the World by National Geographic.

Here is a panoramic video for your viewing pleasure. I hope one day that you get a chance to see this view, which is made all the more mesmerizing after a nice stroll up the mountain.
