Circuits associated to wine-tourism comply with the expectations of those willing to discover the qualities of national wines, mainly Malbec, provided it is the emblematic national strain. Adventure tourism is also an outstanding choice. In winter, ski and snowboard are practiced at two winter centers (Penitentes and Las Leñas); in summer, every kind of mountain activities take place: rafting and kayak take advantage of the maximum flow of rivers. Besides, Mendoza counts with eight water reservoirs fit for boating, windsurf, waterski, diving, yatching, motonautics or sport fishing. For those loving altitudes, Andean Climbing is practiced at every level while paragliding and hang gliding are practiced at the mounts closest to the city. For those seeking to enjoy the beautiful landscapes in an absolute relaxed atmosphere, photographic safaris and wild fauna watching are excellent options. Horse Ridings at the Andes Mountain Range (even tours that follow the paths used by the soldiers that crossed The Andes) and the Aconcagua National Park, where the Aconcagua Mount is located, one of the highest peaks in the world (6.949 mts), are other options that tourists loving nature and seeking adventure should not miss!

Enigmatic particles, as well as other particles of minor energy, come to Earth from outer space and that is why they are called cosmic rays. The ones of lesser speed and energy are predominantly protons and other atomic nucleuses. Therefore, it would be more appropriate to call them cosmic particles. However, the term “rays” is maintained for historical reasons.See in the map
