South America

South America is a continent full of records. In terms of area, it lags behind Asia, Africa and North America, but it is home to the Andes, the longest mountain range in the world, which stretches over 9,000 kilometers. Venezuela is home to the highest waterfall in the world, Angel Falls, which has a drop of almost 1000 meters. The Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina is the only glacier in the world that is not melting, but actually increasing in volume. Between Bolivia and Peru in the Andes lies Lake Titicaca. At an altitude of over 3800 meters above sea level, it is the highest body of water on earth that is navigated by ships.
