The Pampas is the steppe of the continent of South America. It covers a large part of Argentina. The steppe and the Pampas are both types of grasslands. They are both essentially plains which are extensively covered by grass. The Pampas is located to the east of the Andes mountain range in the continent of South America.

The Pampas is basically a vast grass plain located in the northern part of Argentina. It is fertile lowland. The word Pampas is derived from a word in the local language, Quechua. The word is literally translated into English as plain.

The Pampas covers the Argentine provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Santa Fe and Cordoba, most of Uruguay and the region located at the southernmost end of Brazil. It covers a total surface area of more than 750, 000 square kilometres. The Pampas are interrupted only by a low range of mountains known as the Ventania Mountains.
