Geography:

Situated south of Peru and west of Bolivia and Argentina, Chile fills a narrow 1,800-mile (2,897 km) strip between the Andes and the Pacific. Its area is nearly twice that of Montana. One-third of Chile is covered by the towering ranges of the Andes. In the north is the driest place on Earth, the Atacama Desert, and in the center is a 700-mile-long (1,127 km) thickly populated valley with most of Chile's arable land.

At the southern tip of Chile's mainland is Punta Arenas, the southern most city in the world, and beyond that lies the Strait of Magellan and Tierra del Fuego, an island divided between Chile and Argentina.

The southern most point of South America is Cape Horn, a 1,390-foot (424-m) rock on Horn Island in the Wollaston group, which belongs to Chile.

Chile also claims sovereignty over 482,628 sq. mi. (1,250,000 sq. km) of Antarctic territory, the Juan Fernández Islands, about 400 miles (644 km) west of the mainland, and Easter Island, about 2,000 miles (3,219 km) west."

Chile’s climate is as diverse as its geography.The extreme conditions of the Andes mountains, to the northern reaches of the forbidding Atacama desert give way to the more temperate habital areas along the coast, as well as, in the valleys.
