Mount Aconcagua, located on the border of Chile and Argentina, is the highest mountain in South America.
This mountain is also included in the seven highest mountains in the world, with an altitude of 6,962 meters above sea level.
Mount Aconcagua is located in the range of the Andes Mountains and is famous for its cold weather that is dominated by ice, glaciers and rocks. The mountain is also known for its extreme weather and dangerous windstorms, known as "el viento blanco."
In addition to windstorms, climbers must also be aware of the thin oxygen levels on the mountain. Oxygen levels at the top of Aconcagua are about 40 percent lower than in areas near the sea.
However, judging from the characteristics of the trip, the level of difficulty is still light because there is no need to climb ice cliffs. For climbers, walking on the ice is by far the most difficult.
Several climbers from Indonesia managed to reach the top of Mount Aconcagua. Among others, Fransiska Dimitri and Mathilda Dwi from Mahitala Unpar managed to reach the top on January 30, 2016.
Then Dody Johanjaya, a climber from Mapala UI, who reached the summit in February 2012. In 2010 there was the Wanadri team, and in 2011 the Mahitala team also managed to reach the top.
Meanwhile, specifically for Mount Aconcagua, Mapala UI has visited it three times
On its first ascent in 1992, Mapala UI did not make it to the top of the mountain. Mapala UI even had to be willing to lose two of its best climbers, Norman Edwin and Didiek Samsu.
A year later, in January 1993, the team managed to "pay" the debt of climbing to the top of Aconcagua. The ascent of Mapala UI was carried out by Tantyo Bangun and Ripto Mulyono, as well as to install the plaque of the late Norman-Didiek
It seems difficult to attribute Italian specialties to pasta. One of them is lasagna. Lasagna are wide flat pasta noodles, usually baked in the oven.
The origins of lasagna are in the Emilia-Romagna region, where lasagna which was once the food of the poor has become a high-class food.
Maybe you think lasagna is made with a lot of tomato sauce. In fact, at first lasagna was made with only rag (meat sauce), béchamel sauce, and cheese, usually mozzarella cheese or Parmigiano Reggiano.
The use of tomato sauce is not as much as the lasagna that is usually served, because we want to focus on the taste of the meat.

The Iguazu National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Iguazu) is a national park of Argentina, located in the Department of Iguazu, in the northern province of Misiones, Argentine Mesopotamia. It has an area of 677 km 2 (261 sq mi).
The park area was inhabited 10,000 years ago by the hunter-gatherer Eldoradense culture. They were moved around 1000 AD by the Guaraní, who brought new agricultural technology, and were alternately displaced by Spanish and Portuguese conquistadores in the 16th century, although their legacy still lives on in this area (the name of the park and river is Guaraní y guasu, "big water".

The park will form part of the proposed Trinational Biodiversity Corridor, which aims to provide forest links between conservation units in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina in the Upper Paraná ecoregion. The southeastern part of the park borders the 84,000-hectare (210,000-hectare) Uruguaya-í Provincial Park, which was created in 1990
