Every now and then you see something 'special', where you have what can only be described as a 'moment'. One of these places for me was Cerro Campanario near Bariloche on the fringe of Argentina's Patagonia region. According to National Geographic it's one of the 'top ten views in the world'. Looking at this photo you can see why.
There are two ways to the top of Cerro Campanario - you can either take a cable car or you can hike. Myself and Richie, my travel companion at the time, opted for the easier option and went up in a cable car. The journey to the top took around twenty minutes which flew by because the view got nicer and nicer by the second.
There are many reasons to go to Bariloche, this amazing view being just one of them. During winter it's a great place to base yourself if you like skiing, while in summer the amount of adrenaline sports you can choose from is never-ending. If you're heading to Argentina make sure to pencil it in on your itinerary.
