Andes Mountains

We just learned about the Nyenchen Taglha Mountains.

The next highest mountain rage is the Andes Mountains in South America.

These mountains are the longest mountain range in the world, and they go through seven different countries: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile.

The mountain peak of Chimborazo is farther from the Earth's center than any other mountain peak in the world.
This is because near the equator, the earth is wider than other parts of the world.

There are many active volcanoes on the Andes mountains.
