5. The Andes
The Andes are actually our favorite mountain range and no…it has nothing to do with the cuteness of llamas. 🙂 Okay… let’s return to our mountains: the Andes are the longest continental mountain range in the world. They stretch across 7 countries: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina.
Did you know that the Andes host the highest navigable lake in the world, namely Lake Titicaca? Wait… there’s even more: if it weren’t for the Andes, we wouldn’t be eating potato chips today. How so? Well, potatoes originated in the Andes of South America.
