Las Heras Department - Mendoza Province

The village is a green project located one mile northeast the town of Uspallata on Provincial Route 52. Surrounded entirely by mountains, in many ways reflects the high plateau of Tibet (right here was shot the 1997 film with Brad Pitt, "Seven Years in Tibet"). An oasis of green land which lies between the Cordillera and Precordillera, with mountains that rise from 3,500 to 7,000 meters, all perfectly flat, with water supply thanks to the St. Alberto Canal, passing side.

Oberá Department - Misiones Province

Camellia sinensis is an evergreen plant that grows mainly in tropical and subtropical climates. Tea plants require at least 127 cm (50 inches) of rainfall a year and prefer acidic soils. A tea plant will grow into a tree of up to 16 m (52 ft) if left undisturbed, but cultivated plants are pruned to waist height for ease of plucking. In 2010, world tea production reached over 4.52 million tonnes. The largest producers of tea are the People's Republic of China, India, Kenya, Sri Lanka, and Turkey.
Argentina is the ninth producer of tea at world-wide level, with 96,572 tonnes (in 2011) and is the only non Asian nor African country in the top 10. The argentine tea region is located in the extreme Northeast of the country, and represents the world’s southernmost area for tea plantations.

What's interesting about Argentina is that, because of the country's north-south orientation, it has an even more immense variety of landscapes and climates than others its size.

Not that it's a small country, but still.

The Pampas (plains) are fertile lowlands, covering more than 750,000 km2 (289,577 sq mi), that include the Argentine provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Santa Fe, Entre Ríos and Córdoba. These vast plains are a natural region only interrupted by the low Ventana and Tandil hills near Bahía Blanca and Tandil, with a height of 1,300 m (4,265 ft) and 500 m (1,640 ft) respectively.

The climate of the Pampas is generally temperate and the dominant vegetation types are grassy prairie and grass steppe. The region is known for supporting extensive ranching and agriculture.

Some of the wildlife includes the rhea, the pampas deer, several species of armadillos, the pampas fox, the White-eared opossum, the Elegant Crested Tinamou, and several other species.
