Nahuelbuta Forest

The Nahuelbuta Mountain Range has risen since time immemorial. It is estimated 500 million years since its birth produced by tectonic forces, so, symbolically, it could be the great great grandmother of the Andes mountain range, which is estimated to have been around 60 million years since it emerged to be the which is today. 

This wonderful place is unique in the world. In it, species characteristic of sclerophyllous forest, representative of the central zone of Chile, converge with species typical of the rainforest or "Valdivian". During the last ice age, estimated about 13 thousand ago
years, it was a refuge of life, thus becoming a living library for nature scholars.
