Yareta

It is found in rugged mountain terrain at elevations between 4500 m and 5000 m. Hemicryptophytes, with a pillow-like appearance, little flower diversity, and dispersed distribution, are the only plants able to survive the harsh environmental conditions of this area. These characteristics become more pronounced the higher the elevation, where there are more rocky outcroppings and a total lack of vegetation. We can find these plants on the tallest mountains in places like Patapampa, Pampa de Arrieros, Chucura, and on the descent to Chivay.
