The Andes Mountains are the longest continental mountain range in the world, forming a continuous highland along the western edge of South America. This range is about 7,500km long, about 750km wide. The Andes extend from north to south through seven South American countries: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.
