Cuernos del Paine - Puerto Natales

Cuernos del Paine

Cuernos del Paine

Horns of the Paine you can observe in its ends black rock; this is due to the tectonic forces and glacial that carved this bulk. It does something more than ten million years, this type of sedimentary rock covered ample areas in the region. At some moment these rocks had contact with the magma of the interior of the Earth which gave form to granite rocks. Soon, the colossal pressures of the planet made raise these impressive mountains that today we know like the Towers of the Paine.

When the glacial eras arrived, the ice covered the entire region. They only excelled the tops of the highest mountains. When retiring the ice, in the open left the granite, on which the black rock was conserved that had not been covered by the freezing.
Due to the previous today we can appreciate enormous Towers with different colors in a same bulk, which without a doubt is one of the greater quiet spectacles of the Patagónica nature

Cuernos del Paine puedes observar en sus puntas roca negra, esto es debido
A las fuerzas tectónicas y glaciales que esculpieron este macizo. Hace algo más de diez millones de años, este tipo de roca sedimentaria cubría amplias áreas en la región. En algún momento dichas rocas tuvieron contacto con el magma del interior de la tierra lo que dio forma a las rocas de granito. Luego, las colosales presiones del planeta hicieron elevarse estas impresionantes montañas que hoy conocemos como las Torres del Paine.

Cuando llegaron las eras glaciales, el hielo cubrió toda la región. Sólo sobresalían las cimas de las montañas más altas. Al retirarse el hielo, dejó al descubierto el granito, sobre el cual se conservó la roca negra que no había sido cubierta por la glaciación.

Debido a lo anterior hoy podemos apreciar enormes Torres con diferentes colores en un mismo macizo, lo que sin duda es uno de los mayores espectáculos silenciosos de la naturaleza Patagónica.
