Cajas National Park, Ecuador
Digital Photo by Richard McGuire
At a high elevation in the Andes, only scrubby vegetation grows. This is called "páramo" and it superficially reminds one of northern tundra. Cajas National Park, near Cuenca, offers many páramo landscapes with numerous lakes. The elevation here is around 4,200 metres (roughly 13,000 feet).
