The restless earth AQA GCSE Art and Design © Nelson Thornes 2009 AQA GCSE Geography A © Nelson Thornes 20092 Human activities in the Andes The specification requires you to study human activity in one range of fold mountains such as the Andes. The Andes are the longest chain of fold mountains in the world, stretching for 7,000km north-south along the western side of South America. The mountain chain is about 300km wide and has an average height of 4,000m. For the people living in the Andes, the steep slopes and harsh climate are challenges to be overcome, but the region does provide opportunities for farming, energy production, mining and tourism. This presentation describes some of the characteristics of farming, mining, energy production and tourism in this region.

Cash crops include cotton, tobacco and coffee, which are mostly grown in the sheltered and more fertile valley bottoms.
