Derived from the Quechua word anti or "high crest",
the Andes is the world's longest continental mountain range.

Extending north to south through seven South American countries
(Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela),

this 4,300 mile long range of highlands, plateaus and intermediate
depressions is a orogenic belt belonging to
the Pacific Ring of Fire.
