The geography of the Andes is as diverse as it is breathtaking. From snow-capped peaks that reach over 6,000 meters at Chimborazo to deep canyons and the fertile Central Valley, there is no shortage of natural wonders to explore.

 

The climate in the Andes varies depending on the altitude and location. At higher elevations, temperatures can drop below freezing, while lower elevations experience mild spring-like conditions.

FLORA AND FAUNA OF THE ANDES OF ECUADOR

The Andes boast a rich and diverse ecosystem, making it a haven for a wide variety of plant and animal species. The unique combination of altitude, climate, and geography has created an environment that supports both tropical and alpine vegetation. At lower elevations of the Andes flanks, you'll find lush forests teeming with life. Giant ferns cover the forest floor, while orchids, ferns and bromeliads clad the towering trees such as gigantic ceibas providing shelter for a myriad of bird. The cloud forests of the Andes are particularly enchanting, with their mist-shrouded canopies covered in moss and lichen curtains. As you ascend higher into the mountains, the landscape transforms into a desolate yet beautiful alpine environment where you can find thousands of vecunhas. Here, hardy plants such as the bright orange Chuquirahua, Ecuador's national flower, and the polylepis, the world's highest growing tree species clinging to the rocky slopes. This is also the realm of the Andean condor, a majestic bird with a wingspan of up to 3 meters, and the elusive mountain lion. All these creatures are protected in the Ecuador's protected areas system that cover almost 20% the national territory. In fact, Ecuador's Andes mountain range is great for hiking and trekking.
