The secret of the submerged forest
ArgentineHow was it formed? How 60 specimens cypress lived up to 50 meters high were left standing in the clear waters of Lake Traful? Is still the subject of several hypotheses.
The Submerged Forest Lake Traful has at least two theories of his retirement from the surface to the lake basin.
One points out that a 1960 earthquake caused the displacement of the plates of the hillside with cypresses to the bed of the water body.
Being a long-lived tree species, these trees, already ancient, still standing and still you can see the top as needles poke through the water level.
Another theory points to a movement that was registering the mountain and where the movement was falling into the lake.
