English:
The Aconcagua Provincial Park was founded in 1983, under the Provincial Law Number 4807.

The park is situated 180 Km (112mi) east of Mendoza, in the region of Las Heras, and only miles east of the Chile border.

The park covers some 71,000 hectares (175,444 acres), protecting an important sector of the central Andes, with its main attraction being the Aconcagua Mt, with its peak reaching 6,962 meters (22,841ft), making it the tallest mountain in the Americas.

The zone stands out because of its glaciers, like reservoirs of sweet water, holding archaeological remains inside.

The region is characterized by being arid and rocky, with tall peaks, permanently covered in snow.

The vegetation is scarce and covers the hills until 4,000 meters (13,123ft) in altitude, with such herbs as coirón, and shrubs such as yellow brushwood.

The animals in the region are also scarce and demonstrate special adaptations to combat the dry conditions. One of the most common birds is the majestic condor, also called the King of the Andes.
