The region of
Lago Puelo National Park is famous for its unique
microclimate of High Andes biosphere. Much of its territory is
covered by Patagonian forest and steppes or plains. Beautiful
color of the lake in the middle of national park is given by
glacier sediment of silt that was left after ice have retreated.
Some of the animals that can be met here are red foxes, cougars,
small deer pudu, huemul and many others. The eastern part of the
Lago Puelo National Park is inhabited by indigenous tribes of
Mapuche natives. But these are not the first humans that
inhabited this area. First hunter- gatherers that settled in the
territories of modern day
Lago Puelo National Park
left rock paintings in the caves of the park.
Lago Puela National Park contains two campsites on the shores of
the lake Puela. Additionally you can find horse rentals and boat
rides across the lake. A network of hiking trails is spread
across the protected area.
