A tribute to the World Heritage Site is being featured on the most famous website in the world.
Google has honoured Argentina’s “stunning” Los Glaciares national park with a doodle that will run on the homepage today, May 11.
Today marks the 80th anniversary of the park which counts its main attraction as a cluster of mountain peaks at its northern boundary.
Designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, the park contains Argentina’s largest freshwater lake. Lake Argentino is supplied by the Perito Moreno Glacier, which grinds a path through the Patagonian Andes mountain range.
“As the powdery blue glacier advances, the ice often gives way with a resounding crack, plunging into the chilly lake and calving enormous icebergs,” notes Google in its description of the day’s doodle.
