We can see the vegetational transition from the Sclerophyllous Forest to the High Andean Steppe of the summit with scrub, cacti and succulents and, if we are lucky, we will be able to see some condors, different species of lizards and foxes, among others. Darwin has already told us about his panoramas, 188 years later he can only be encouraged to see it with his own eyes.
