Patagonia is a geographical region located in the southern part of South America. Its areas are situated between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and extend to Chile and Argentina. Patagonia was discovered by Ferdinand Magellan and it is the area full of rivers, lakes and fjords, picturesquely stretching at the foot of the Andes. Mount Fitz Roy is one of the peaks located at the border of the two countries and it reaches the height of 3375 meters above the sea level. The mountain was named in honor of the British sailor Robert Fitzroy. The indigenous people used to call the peak Cerro Chaltén ("Smoking Mountain"), referring to the fact that its tip is often hidden in dense clouds.
