For this reason, the climate of Chile is so diverse because the territory of the state covers desert areas, tropical continental areas and tundra. Let's go on a journey through this country and learn more about it.

Looking for on the world map of Chile

The Geography of any country begins with its location on the map. Chile is a country which is located in the South-West of South America, capturing in their possession such as extensive mountain range of the Andes as she is. West coast States border the Pacific ocean, on the East the country borders with Argentina and Bolivia, and in the North – Peru.

In Addition to the mining complex in the country has a huge Atacama desert. It is considered the most arid in the world, its relief is not of sand and soil and rocks, but even despite such harsh conditions, there are plants. It is worth saying that in many respects the climate of Chile was established as a direct result of topography.


Chile is a country located in South America. If we look at the map, you will see the following climatic zones, which have sharp differences:

  • Desert. The territory of the Region covers the entire North of the state. Precipitation is once in four years, and for the rest of the time blowing a strong wind, and the maximum diurnal temperature changes on the planet. Climatic seasons do not exist.
  • Chilean Andes-mountains with a pronounced altitudinal zoning. Seasonal variations in temperature are slight, but daily felt. In the North ridge crosses the tropical zone but it shares borders with the desert. Due to this, the Western part of the mountains, suffers from drought, and in the East precipitation is very abundant. In the Southern Andes of Chile the climate becomes more moderate, increases and becomes uniform amounts of rainfall. Pronounced seasonal variation in temperature.
  • Central part of the state – subtropical zone. From plants, there are shrubs and grass, a rare grouping of small trees.
  • Small area of the country from the centre to the South are covered with evergreen forests.
  • Patagonia or the far South, - the place of refuge of the Antarctic glaciers. It is always cold, summer comes the polar night and winter-the polar day.
