The Andes is the largest mountain range in South America with mountains, glaciers, rainforest and countless other natural gems. This mountainous area is about 7,000 km long and 160 km wide in some places.
The Aconcagua is at 6,920 meters the highest mountain in this mighty mountain range. But there are many six-thousanders, as mountains above 6000 meters are called. As well as five-thousanders, etc.
You can travel through it relatively easily, for example from country to country. Travelling from Chile to Argentina is very popular, as are Bolivia and Peru. It's up to you how you want to experience the mountains. A trip to the Andes can be done in groups, but can also easily be done on your own with a guide. Or with your own 4x4 rental car, although you do have to prepare your trip well.
