Campo de los Alisos National Park


Campo de los Alisos National Park

The Campo de los Alisos National Park is a national park of Argentina, located in the Chicligasta Department, province of Tucumán. It has an area of 100 square kilometres.

This national park was created in order to protect a representative sample of the "montanos" jungle and forest ecosystem. Annual rainfall here oscillates between 100 and 200 mm.

The park is located on the eastern slope of the "Nevados del Aconquija". The Aconquija mountains are the southern extension of the Calchaquíes Valleys, the western first steps raising from the Chaco-Pampean plain.

Flora and fauna vary considerably with the different heights, from a jungle at lower levels to snow-covered mountainous terrain at 5,000 m.
