Ecuador Andes

In Ecuador, two narrow parallel ranges run north to south, with roughly thirty miles of fertile valley between them. The ranges are the Cordilleras Oriental (East) and Occidental (West), and the valley is called the Central Valley, and extends for 250 miles and holds most of Ecuador's major cities. West of the mountains are hot and humid coastal lowlands, while east of the mountains is the tropical rainforest of the Amazon Basin, known in Ecuador as the Oriente, which itself contains a few isolated volcanoes such as Reventador (11,434 ft.) and Sumaco (12,697 ft.). The climbing season in Ecuador is during the dry periods of June to September, and there is a secondary dry period during December, shortly prior to the start of the rainy season. The rainy season reaches its height in March and April.
