I'll have to disagree since the Sierra is in one state, one country, unlike the
Andes which is 4300 miles, and runs through several countries, so they are not
Find me a range less than 400 miles long to compare that is as diverse, and beautiful
as the Sierra Nevada, not over 10 times the length!
None of those countries with the Andes running through them have the bio diversity
that the Sierra offers, each have several individual spots that are beautiful, but not
even close to 400 miles of it, and if we really take from Northern Yosemite
to Southern SEKI than we are really only talking about 270-300 miles!
To me Chile, from what I have seen, would offer the most, and the one I would visit
if I had the chance, and then Bolivia, Peru, and Argentina from the rest.
