Altiplano, Mountains and Chaco in South America19.8S 63.9W
Most of the visible terrain on both sides of the Andes Mountains in this images belongs to Bolivia, while much of the cloud-covered area is part of Paraguay and some of the lower left quadrant is part of Argentina.
To the east of the Andes is a region known as the Gran Chaco, a sparsely populated, hot and semi-arid lowland region of the Río de la Plata basin. To the west lies the Bolivian Altiplano, an area of inland drainage (endorheism) with an average height of about 3,300 meters (11,000 feet).
Several rivers flow down from the mountains, across the green Bolivian terrain: the first three, from top to bottom, are the Rio Grande (also called the Guapay), Parapeti River and Pilcomayo River. All of these are golden brown in color from the load of sediments they are carrying.
