Trekking in the Patagonian Andes - Central Patagonia (Chapter)
This is the Central Patagonia chapter from Lonely Planet's Trekking in the Patagonian Andes guidebook.
Wild and isolated, central Patagonia is the untamed heart of the region, less feted and crowded than other famous hotspots. While it may be hard to reach, this backwater rewards those who make the effort with dense forests, clear streams, unnamed peaks and sprawling glaciers.
