Sierra Vicuna Mackenna
The Cordillera Vicuna Mackenna is the highest section of the Chilean Coast Range located in northern Chile, west of Pampa del Tamarugal. It runs north-south for approximately 170 km parallel to the Andes. The driest parts of Atacama Desert are located east of the range due to the rain shadow produced by it.
