Peruvian landscape

The foothills of the Andes mountains near the southern coast of Peru are captured by the Kompsat-2 satellite.

The Andes stretch about 7000 km from Venezuela down South America's west coast to the top of Argentina. The mountain rage is the result of the Nazca and Antarctic tectonic plates moving under the South American plate - a geological process called 'subduction'. This process is also responsible for the Andes range's volcanic activity.
