Chimborazo.  It's also one of the most active, with about 50 known eruptions in the past 250 years, most recently in 2016.  The video was taken as part of an  expedition that reached the south summit of the mountain, which lies just to the south of Quito.

Hiking the Rainbow Mountains of Peru

Unraveled ...

Unraveled Studios used a drone to capture the unbelievable beauty of Peru's Rainbow Mountain, a truly unique geological phenomenon.  Also known as Vinicunca, it's part of the Andes range in the south central part of the country.  The mountain is known not for its height (5.2k m or 17k ft) but rather for its stunning rainbow colors which derive from a unique sedimentary pattern.  Unrivaled Studios gives us a breathtaking aerial look at the mountain, which has only recently opened for tourism. 

Colombia's Volcán de Puracé

Contributor and pilot Mavdrone used a DJI drone to create this breathtaking video of the Calbuco Volcano, which lies along the Pacific coast of Chile in the region of Los Lagos.  Dormant since the early 1970's, the volcano erupted in a spectacular fashion in 2015.  Contributor Mavdrone was able to fly a drone over the volcano as it was erupting at that time, creating a memorable aerial video of this geological beast.  The mountain is situated in the heart of the Andes Mountains system, which runs down the western side of the continent.  

Bolivia's Volcanoes


Volcano Cemetery


The South American country of Bolivia may be the volcano capital of the world.  The landlocked country in the heart of the Andes Mountains region is home to literally dozens of them, many of them active and/or in excess of 5k meters (around 16.5k ft.) in peak elevation.  Driving from Bolivia to Chile, contributor la.drones passed through a stretch of the Bolivian desert named the Cementerio de los Volcanes because of the high number of these geological wonders that populate the impressive Andean landscape.  

Machu Picchu: Inca Mountain Citadel


Machu Picchu: Lares Trek to the Inca Lost City


In 2016, contributor and pilot Nomad Drone created this incredible aerial tour of the trek to Machu Picchu, the great Inca city high up the Andes Mountains in Peru.  With amazing aerial shots of the landscape as well as the local inhabitants, this drone video will astound you.  Built in the early 16th century in the Andes Mountains as a royal estate for the Inca King, Machu Picchu was abandoned prior to the completion of the Spanish conquest of Peru.  It is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage cultural site.

Contributor and pilot FreD served up this epic video of the wildllife of the Altiplano in northern Chile.  Also known as the Andean Plain or the Bolivian Plain, the Altiplano is a key component of the Andes Mountain system.  It is the second largest high plateau in the world after the Tibetan Plateau.  It is dominated by vicuna and llama herding, species which you'll see in abundance in this spectacular video.  Most of the Antiplano territory is in Bolivia and Peru; it covers only a small amount of territory in Chile.

Bolivia's Salt Flats


Salar de Uyuni: Bolivia's Salt Flats


Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat.  Victoraroundtheworld used his DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone to take us on a tour of this amazing area which appears to be blanketed in white.  Located in the southwestern corner of the country, the flats are part of the Bolivian Altiplano, itself part of the Andes system.  Salar de Uyuni was used as a filming location for the Star Wars film the Last Jedi (2017), the eighth installment in the series; the flats "played the role" of Planet Crait.

The Atacama Desert

Check out this absolutely magnificent drone video of Chile's Atacama Desert, compliments of top AirVuz contributor and pilot nevinxavier.  The Atacama runs in a north-south direction for a length of about 1k km (around 600 mi.) along Chile's west coast, with small portions in Peru and Bolivia.  Covering an area of roughly 105k square km (a bit over 40k square mi.), it's considered part of the Andes system.  In terms of aridity and lack of temperature variation, it's considered the most "perfect" desert.  This was a DVOW Winner in June, 2020.
