The Andean Region

The Andes is the longest continental mountain range in the world, running along the western coast of South America. This range is about 4,300 miles long, and from about 120 to 430 miles wide with an average height of about 13,000 ft. The Andes extend from Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile to Argentina. Because of South America's broad ethnic mix, which includes Native Americans, Europeans, Africans and Asians, the Andean nations present a rich variety of cultures, languages, artistic traditions, music and cuisine.
