The two main physical features in Chile are the Andes Mountains and the Atacama Desert. The Andes Mountains are located on the East most boarder of Chile and covers about half of Chile. The Andes Mountains are also named one of the highest mountain ranges outside of Asia. The Atacama Desert is located in between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean which is in Chile. The Andes Mountains are a plateau located in South America that covers a 600 mile strip of land. Most of the desert is made up of stony terrain, salt lakes, sand, and felsic lava that flows towards the Andes Mountains.
